Cam chain tensioner

Good afternoon everyone,


I have replaced my ACCT sprig 3 times but I still get the ticking sound for about 5 mins when i start the bike front cylinder only bike has 23k and its a 97. I do not get to ride it as much as i'd like to.


Thank you

Andre

the pretty much universally agreed on method of curing the ACCT issue is to go with manual ones. either make your own out of the existing ACCT's, or get some manual ones from TOC or similar

I also say go manual tensioners. TOC makes a good set, and some convert theirs over to manual.

If it only does it until the bike warms up I wouldn't worry about it. Many "tick" some when cold.
If it gets louder or does it constantly....yeah, go with the manual adjusters..

Knifemaker it does for about 5 mins and it goes away, I might just put some louder pipes and forget about it.

Thank you very much for the info
