ACCT to MCCT Video

There's 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:
  1. 6mm x 40 bolt
  2. 2 6mm nuts
  3. 1 6mm Locking Washer
  4. 1 #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.

I know you were going to do the video, but I had to redo my front one so I just decided to throw a video together really quickly.

There was no serious problem with clearance of the coolant bottle on the rear. I just had to angle the bottle a little bit to get it to screw back in with the bolt in the area where the rear brake cable goes. I'll take some pictures of my rear MCCT here in a little bit and post them on here. I might do a video as well on how I had to get my bottle set in place and everything, but it takes about 3 hours for my videos to upload to youtube cause of the size of them and everything.

I do want to thank you for your topic on the ACCT to MCCT conversion. I didn't use the larger bonded washer on my conversion, and have no problems with leaks. The whole conversion for both sides cost me $4.24 total, but the bolts aren't chrome plated either. Between your post on how to do it, and this post with the video should be easy for everyone to see how it's done.

I might do a video as well on how to adjust the MCCT cause if you tighten it to much it will put WAY TO MUCH tension on the cam chain and cause the engine to die, and impossible to start back up.

Outstanding video - thank you!

Quickie question though, I had an APE Racing MCCT on my old KZ1100 and it only used one lock nut. Why the use of two + the split washer?

I only have the lock washer the 2 nuts are just 2 regular nuts, and the lock washer is just to make sure they nuts lock together and not move. It's what I could find at the local hardware store. It works perfectly.

Gotcha, and I'm pretty sure I understand what you did - question is whether there was a reason to not just use one nut and jam it against the tensioner body to lock everything down allowing the use of a smaller bolt.

My old tensioner just had the one nut, so the extra nut and split washer got me curious...

I used the basic parts that the poster in my signature for the ACCT-MCCT conversion used. With the bolt that is being used extends the tensioner out all the way, and has a small amount of room left for the 2 nuts and washer. It works perfectly for me the way I got it set up, and didn't cost me all that much money to do it. People are welcome to try other items to make these.

My knocking goes away once the engine is warmed. I guess the only reason for me to look into mine is because of prior leak (rear) splatters, and stripped (front) top screw which is presently being held leak-proof and tight with RTV. Ride safe.
Click on the ACCT to MCCT link in my signature. The member that posted that link can give a excellent description and pictures on what isn't needed anymore. I just threw the video together for it.

I used two nuts because the body and threads of the stock acct are soft and very easily stripped, (I found this out the hard way replacing the springs a couple years ago, thanks again crobins for bailing me out on that one cheap!). using two nuts will let you lock it in place without putting too much stress on the threads.

And thanks for the credit in your sig link netmatrix!
