Grambon trick

I have been a member for over a year now. I have heard of the grambon trick but never read up on it just skimmed it . Im not very confident when it comes to working on my bike but with such a wealth of info I had no problem. Took like 5 min. and the tick went away. Also did the marlble thing too. A lot less popping during decel and its also starting up alot easier. If it says nice enough outside I might try the stator adjustment. Thank you so much.

Actually, it's the "Grambo" trick, but he swears up and down that he got it from somebody else on the VROC forum. I forget who came up with it, but we like grambo so we named it after him.

Good for you for gettin' into your bike's workings. It's a good feeling to fix something yourself. Keep at it. Someday you may get yourself out of a road side jam by knowing how stuff works.


Jetted, shaved & coastered
Home made under-tank single filter
Converted ACCT's to manual (thanks wib714)
Dual vac lines on petcock (my cure for ticking)

Relocated helmet lock to license plate

Added stuff:
Customized hard bags w/ lights
Chrome levers
Hellcat windscreen
LED running lights
Home made 'Vita-Volt' meter
Foot rests on engine guard

Hmm....she was on the back when we left.... ??

No offense to Grambo,, it does work, but if your ACCTs are worn, it won't work for long. It is more usefull as a test to make sure what the problem is. If the noise goes away temporarily, and comes back right away, then you need to switch to MCCTs. You can also do the opposite, and turn the little screw counterclockwise to advance the tensioner and make the noise go away, but again if the tensioner is worn out, the plunger will back out by itself, and the noise will come back.

I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
