toc mcct



bought a set and slapped em on now i hear all the damn ratteling from the tac and speedo . i poped the old ones off and bolted the mcct on then by hand with the engine off tightend them by hand till i felt resistance . then started bike back them out till i heard the cam chain noise then twisted them back till the noise stoped and wacked the jam nut home... hope i did it right
took me 10 mins maybe and a good 45 min ride afterwards to see if it was okay to go


i tryed the grambo trick it lasted a few hundred miles . well i just turned 9000 miles this year and listening to the cam chains banging around for the last 8500 ish miles really irritated me . it would come and go mostly when the bike was cold , so i orderd them last friday night and they were in my mail box today after work !!!!

Sounds to me like you installed them in just the right method. I also installed the TOC MCCT's. The only thing I wish was different? ... I wish the bolts were cap screws so you could use a socket on the lock nut. The mounting nuts kinda get in the way of an open end wrench right?
Other than that, I like the idea of such a critical component being made of steel rather than threaded aluminum.

The right side was an issue ( side with coolant jug) I used my snap-on off set box end wrench.

How much do they cost? Is it possible to mess anything up while doing this?

Those TOC tensioners are GREAT. I have over 40,000 miles on a set with no problems at all. They are WELL worth the price, and ten times better than converting the crappy stock ones to manual.

I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.

And what do you base that statement on? Ever used the converted ones?

I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!

I'd like to hear an answer to that one myself,they do the same thing,several on here have done it,me included,and did them for another Vulcan owner who is more than happy with his and have ran many miles with them.

The biggest difference I see is about ten bucks vs however much you paid for yours.You have absolutely no data to back up that statement,if you like yours great,but mechanically, they perform the same job.




If you see it on my bike I did it
