Acct ???

Hey guys... I recently bought a 2000 VN750... Love the bike but as you can imagine it is an older bike with issues... One of the issues appears to be noise coming from the right side ACCT... Before I spend any money on it I want to make sure that the ACCT is the problem. Since my left side isn't making any noise would it be a valid test to swap them... and if the noise follows the ACCT then I know that is where the problem is???

thanks to all in advance...

See "grambo trick" in the engine section of the vulcan verses.
It is a simple, no cost test requiring only a wrench to remove the cap screw and a small screwdriver to put a little more pressure on the screw inside the ACCT. If the noise stops, you know the OEM spring is weak, and you need a replacement HD spring from TOC, or change to a Manual CCT.

I recently changed my ACCT's to MCCT's and couldn't be happier knowing that an adjustment is seconds away.

X2! do the Grambo trick to see if it helps. If it does, you know its the ACCT needing work. If not, it may be something else causing the noise. Most here will recommend the MCCT as a replacement, but I was one that rebuilt my ACCT's with new TOC heavier springs and the ACCT's were still going quietly along after another 15k miles before I sold the bike.

Ya guess I should've posted that I tried that last night... Afterwards I cranked it up and it wasn't as loud... but it was still pretty noisy...

Not really worried about the cost... I just hate replacing parts just to find out that the problem is still there... Either way converting to MCCT is on my list of things to do so maybe I should just go ahead and move forward with that...

TOC Manufacturing website;

http://www.tocmanufacturing.com/ACCT.htm

"TOC Manufacturing recommends that you replace the ACCT springs every 2 to 3 years".

Because of this statement on their website, I decided to go with their MCCT's. Good marketing or not, I didn't want to deat with them again if I didn't have to.

Ya... now that I read my original post seems like it makes sense to go ahead and convert to MCCT if i'm going to take the time to swap them anyways...

Good info guys... appreciate it..
