    Re: Parts replacement advice

    Before my 4000 mile trip to Morocco in 2013 I changed the oil, made sure the tyres and pads were good for the distance, checked the tyre pressures and set off. The odo read just over 125000 miles when I set off. The CCTs are original and have never been touched. I carried a spare reg/rec with me since this component had failed several times during the lifetime of the bike..

    When you replace by manual cct, you should put the engine in TDC?

    thanks

    You'll need to set TDC for each cylinder to remove old auto and to install MCCT.

    This the fundamental DIY procedure on the VTR Firestorm

    Manual Cam Chain Tensioner Installation Guide (MCCT's) - VTR1000.ORG

    How to remove and refit CCT's on the Firestorm - VTR1000.ORG

    Study them well and take your time. My tips: Cable tie the camchains to prevent chain jumping just in case when installing new manual CCTs and put some silcone on the threads to prevent oil drips leaking out up through them.
