Recon your own CCTS easily and cheaply

These are a viable cost effective alternative and are priced to allow regular changing during major service intervals. Made from high quality spring steel from a template VTR1000 spring.

email direct for more info [email protected]

discount for bulk orders

Have sent to USA and charged $39.00 per pair inc P&P, every deal could be different due to exchange rates but thats minumum price. Please contact me first for price.

You order I ship straight away, no pre payment is asked of you first.

Its a trust thing.

BirdofParadise is an unknown quantity at this point
Dave,

I just replaced a set of "new" OEM CCTs for a friend. I noticed the new CCTs had almost double the tension (guessing by "wrist-o-meter").

Are your springs made with a higher tension than the original OEM CCT springs?

I am pretty sure BirdofParadise said he replaced a set of CCTs with a new set of OEM CCTs. The last time I checked they didn't come in different spring pressure sets. I also don't see anywhere on this thread where SpringMan says that his springs are higher pressure.

I agree - using manual CCTs lets you set a lower stress on the chain, having the minimum force needed to quiet the chains should be the goal. A mechanics stethoscope ($15) is a bit better than the old screw driver to set the plunger screw.

Correct.
Replacements were newer OEM. There was a deffinate difference in the tenssion between old and new. I can't see the originals loosing that much spring pressure in 12,000 miles but I guess it could happen. The end result was significantly reduced noise. Yep it was not completely gone but was almost unnoticeable. Since the bike is a daily comuter any further hunting will have to wait.

When you guys are replacing with APE units does the cam noise completely disappear?
