Default f4i cctl

I just became educated on the existence of the cam chain tensioner problem, and I am wondering if it is what is responsible for the buzzing that I have been hearing from the airbox/engine area for just about...well...ever. I bought the bike at 1200 miles and didn't notice the buzzing, and then I got in a wreck shortly after and started hearing the buzzing shortly after. I always assumed it was something in the bodywork, in spite of being unable to find it.

Is this probably the cctl? It does seem to go faster as rpm increases, and it does seem to be getting slowly worse.

Thanks, josh

probably not...the cct starts to rattle (sounds like BB's in a can) around 4800 and usually stops before 6K. It can be a very serious problem if not attended to.

If you are going to replace the lifter, buy an APE manual and eliminate the problem

Who has actually had a serious problem with the CCT? It just rattles.

If you let it go for too long and there's enough slack in the chain, the cams can jump timing, which would be very bad.

Don't hear of it happening much, but the APE is so cheap that it's worth doing, esp. to get rid of that annoying buzz.

hozhead switched to an ape, his suggestion was to replace with another auto. this is due to how piss poorly the FI stuff is laid out and it being a total bitch to get to the CCT to adjust it.

Wrong...the symptoms are the lifter rattling and if it fails and pulls away from the chain. Unrestrained, the chain will stretch and can lead to jumping time, slipping or breaking a gear, and a whole host of problems to your head can result...like bent, broken, or dropped valves...none of which are pleasant
