Are these the right springs? (ACCT)

Hey guys,

I ordered what I thought were tensioner springs for the assembly from BikeBandit, and they sent me what looks like clutch springs.

I called them and verified that the item # on the sticker on the spring packaging was the right one and they confirmed that they are supposed to be the right springs.

They look nothing like any cam chain tensioner springs I have seen in photos, and I am hoping for confirmation that these are what the replacement OEM springs look like, or if I truly did get the wrong ones.... thoughts please?

(haven't taken the assembly apart yet, so can't compare it to what I have now)

You have part number 92081, which is a tensioner spring that fits under another bolt on the cylinder, not the ACCT.

This is the only place you can get springs to rebuild your ACCT:

Kawi considers the ACCT non repairable, and you have to buy a whole new ACCT from them.

dont even have to expand the pic to see that those are wrong, I reccomend the mcct from toc. I replaced my springs with theirs and one broke in two weeks. I think I just got a bad one though cause they have sold many with no complaints. I have had my acct off so many times to adjust I can have it off, rebuilt and back on in less than 5 minutes, did it last night. I'm going with mccts as soon as i can afford it!

The springs pictured are not the ACCT spring, but the CCT spring that puts pressure on the Cam Chain guide itself. It won't hurt to replace these springs along with the ACCT springs as they both effect the cam chain tension. Look for a cover bolt directly above the ACCT. Careful not to loose the O-ring when removing it. The spring is located directly behind that bolt. Nothing fancy to replace, just slip out the old spring and slip in the new, then replace the bolt. TOC Manufacturing, as recommended above, has a ACCT rebuild kit includes the key to hold the ACCT while installing, springs and O-rings (or MCCT equivalent).
