How often does a MCCT need to be adjusted

Recommended Posts

I didn't want to asked, so I searched and searched but couldn't find an answer. How often does a person need to adjust a manual cam chain tensioner? One guy adjusted his everyride, but then people thought it was to tight. I ride everyday to work. Would once a season be enough (3000 miles) or how about every oil change. I get the pros of the MCCT, but I just don't want to have to fiddle with it all the time. I'm bad enough at checking my oil and air pressure. I have a 2001 drz400s with 10,000 miles.

So I'll know if it needs adjustment by hearing more noise. Thanks cool because with the automatic cam chain adjuster you don't know until your chain is in real bad shape, unless you take the valve cover off.

What, like when you check your valve clearances? :smirk:
