CCT install question


Recommended Posts

I have an 08 ktm 450sx-f. I purchased and installed dirt tricks cam chain tensioner. I installed it with the machined "TOP" side up. The instructions state that you should hear the clicking when placing the spring in, I did not. I uninstalled everything and tried again placing the "TOP" side down b/c it only seemed to ratchet this way when not in the engine. When I installed it like this once again no clicking. I uninstalled and reinstalled once more this time pressing on the plunger with a small punch lightly ... I think i may have heard one click. I got an email out to dirt tricks, What do you guys think? I havent heard anything back b/c of the holiday I guess.

If your cam chain is new or in almost new condition it´s hard to get the tensioner to click when you install it. If installed correctly it will immediately take up any "slack" in the cam chain once the engine turns over.
