I have read where some have replaced the spring in the tensioner only to have it break right away. Could it possibly be that when replacing the spring within the ACCT that whoever is doing it, that the spring is not placed properly or with the proper tension when being replaced that's causing the premature failure? Or maybe has anyone tried replacing the whole ACCT mechanism when theirs fails? Doing the MCCT mod does for sure allow the cam chain tension to be manually adjusted. But it does not CURE the ACCT problem. I find it hard to believe that Kawasaki made the VN-750 all those years and failed to come up with a cure for the ACCT. What I am getting at is that the Auto cam chain tensioner in my Kawasaki 454-LTD never failed in 89,000 miles. And that is what I would like for my 2002 VN-750 to perform like. If a device fails, it should be made to work properly and not be kluged. I commend those of you who came out with the mod, and I certainly don't have an answer to properly fix the ACCT. But if maybe enough of us hounded Kawasaki that they just might come out with a cure.
