WTB MCCT or converted ACCT

I know it's a long shot that anyone has a set to sell, but I thought I'd give it a shot anyway, looking for a set of MCCTs or ACCTs that have been converted to manual.

There's MCCTs on eBay for $49.99 each shipped, or the TOC Manufacturing ones that are around $115 shipped for both, but if at all possible I'd like to save a bit if anyone has a set they can sell. $100+ is a bit steep for me right now, but the bike is making lots of noise. Already tried the Grambo trick, didn't work much.

ACCT to MCCT Conversion Thread created by wib714
https://www.vn750.com/forum/showthread.php?t=17917

There are a couple of threads on here on how to convert a ACCT to a MCCT. I know one members said he'd get a video put up here, but I went ahead and did a video of the MCCT I created.

Supplies needed: (for each mcct)
1. 1 each -6mm x 40 bolt
2. 2 each -6mm nuts
3. 1 each -6mm Locking Washer
4. 1 each - #12 x 5/8 bonded washer

Parts not needed:
1. Sleeve
2. Spring
3. Flat Washer

I did this on my bike yesterday to the rear cylinder and front cylinder, and they both quit knocking after the conversion. I took the front one off to do this video. I love that we are able to do this conversion.

MCCT conversion

Really, with the video and typed instructions this is something anyone can do. The only thing is remember you are working with aluminum, so do not over tighten the assembly when you put it (them) back on the bike, A little blue Loc-tite is what I used. Areal $$ saver.

Unless the deal is that you don't want to tear apart your current set of ACCTs for whatever reason..

Still, it'll be cheaper to covert the ones your have then it would cost for shipping alone. (Well, OK. I'm guessing there. I've never shipped anything South of the border.) Plus, as long as your careful with the disassembly, it's a snap to put them back together in the original configuration.

......I'd rather wake up in the middle of nowhere then in any city on earth.

I kinda busted the thread on a previous ACCT's plug screw, so I'm a little uneasy about it... Also, I don't know the names in Spanish of some of the items I need.

I think I will try it anyway. Maybe I'll look for some cheap ACCTs on eBay first just so I don't end up with a parked bike again if anything goes wrong.

The materials list and links do help a great deal though, thank you WilliamTech!!

Now to research how the hell those parts are named in Spanish... u_u

Ok... just saw the video... so the "bonded washer" acts like a gasket? what material is it made of?

Is there anything special about the locking washer or is it just a regular flat washer?

I'm gonna have to describe them at the hardware store, cause well, everyone's an idiot here. So I gotta know these details so I don't get the wrong stuff.

The bonded washer is meter on one side and rubber or dome other type of material on the other.

I did this on my front cylinder and it worked great... the parts for both sides cost me a total of $3....

No a lock washer has an offset split in it or has teeth going around the circle

Just Google image lock washer and you'll see what I'm talking about

I believe the serrated one is called a "star washer"...

I use a neoprene washer, topped by a nylon washer, then a regular nut followed by a NyLock nut. Havent lost a drop of oil in over 3k miles.
