CCT - Convert or replace?

I'm overdue for a CCT fix and was wondering if it's worth buying aftermarket MCCTs or if converting the ACCTs will give as good a result.

On a similar note. Is there any risk to converting the ACCTs? Wouldn't want to mess them up and have my bike down for weeks waiting for replacements.

I converted the ACCT's and have had them on for about 2 months and 500 miles or so. (Not really a testament to longevity yet, but I'm happy and the engine doesn't clatter on startup like it used to) Teflon tape the threads so you don't leak oil if you do the conversion.

If you are a worry wart or have cash to burn buy the TOCs and enlist someone you trust to help adjust properly. If you are cheap and prefer the pride of DIY make your own and use the wolfie mod from sticky and pat yourself on the back.

If I can do it, anyone can. Adjusting them is harder than making them. In my opinion if you are nut adding the nut internally you should not modify stock acct - I would not trust them without the aforementioned welded nut inside. YMMV.

If I can split a case and make it work - you can too!

Is it even possible to weld? It's aluminium, right? Aluminium welding is very much outside my comfort zone.

After reading through that post I am definitely going to take my converted ACCT's out and install the JB-welded nut as is discussed in that thread before I go riding again.

JB weld is only available in the US AFAIK.
Is it just 2-component epoxy, or is it different in some way. I always assumed that Americans just refer to it because it is the most common brand (like post-its).

So, will any 2-component epoxy do?
