ACCT ticking noise?

I hear an irregular ticking sound when the bike is idling. I don't hear it at all except at idle. Could it be the springs are bad on the acct or would I hear ticking all the time if that were the problem? It runs silky smooth.

Thanks

Try the Grambo trick. It worked amazingly well on mine. It is also free. Go from there.

X2 for grambo and go from there ...
Next step would be taking them off and greasing the internals.

OK I understand the part about tightening the spring and letting it snap back. I don't understand the part about going 1/4 turn further than it snaps back. Am I loosening it then?

After you turn to the right to tighten then let it snap back, turn to the left to apply additional pressure.

When you are "tightening the spring" to let it snap back you are in fact loosening the plunger and backing it away from the cam chain, then letting it snap back into the cam chain by the spring pressure. Then turning the screw a quarter turn in the opposite direction is actually tightening the plunger into the cam chain.

Did the Grambo. Oil dripped out the back ACCT. Is that bad?

Thanks

No that's normal. It's on the downhill side of the back cyl so you're gona get some oil dripping out of there. Test it yet?
