TICkets MCCT inquiry

I bought their MCCT awhile back and installed it with no problems but I would like a little closure if possible. I can't shake the feeling that it's either too tight or too loose. Can someone who knows theirs is fine tell me how many threads are left showing from the locknut to the head of the Center bolt so I can compare

That information as far as how many threads are showing will tell you what they believe to be the correct adjustment for their particular bike. Each bike will have a different amount of wear and so the tension adjustment will be different. The information that I received when I did my change over was to have the set nut on top slightly snug so you can easily tighten or loosen the tension while listening. Listen to that particular area for any change in sound as you tightened or loosened the tension bolt. To increase your hearing ability you can place the end of a long screw driver there and the handle against your ear as the engine is running. This is an old time mechanic trick that is sometimes used to locate particular noises in a motor such as valves. A second method is to use a regular stethoscope or better a mechanics stethoscope that has a long hollow rod rather than the usual round diaphragm on the end. The key is to make the initial adjustments slowly and once you find the "sweet spot" you can tighten the nut and move on to the other side. Good luck.

and always remember, "Ride until you rot!"
**Really not sure if the Big "C" is back right now
but having to face the fact that this is a lifetime routine
going forward. Five operations done and it still continues.
