Shop Says ACCT bad I say no...I think
Had new MT66s put on yesterday and they tried to tell me that the ACCT needed replacing for $360 (don't think so) So when the bike is cold I can hear very faint valve train noise don't think there is a quite chain driven timing set. I can hear the "whine/wherr" noise if I take around the block w/o a helmet on. With helmet on I only hear exhaust. From the sound of this problem I would hear something off with or withoput the helmet. I bought the bike last year and it had been sitting for almost a year. I have noticed no new nosies in that time. I would expect it would have gotten louder if the chain had slack in it that long. I tried the GAMBO trick lastnight they both turned 5-6 times easley CW and then very quickly back CCW when I let the screwdriver slide in my hand. If they were bad I don't think they would be so "snappy" going back. Just wanted to get everyone's experance who has for sure had this problem. Thanks in advance.
PS I think I will order the kit from TOC since $35 to be sure seems like pretty cheap insurance. Now that I have got a good look at them seems like about an hour project to rebuild them. (The shop told me 1-2 hrs to replace them with new units. Please I could swap them out in 45mins and I'm not the pro. Guess the tires don't generate enough profit when they only get about $70 labor to mount and balance them, Was a local small bike shop and not dealer also I try to support the little guy but damn)
