Im sorry for your loss Henry , but I've got to ask what so many are holding back . Is there any chance you'll consider continuing with the supply of CCT ?

My question is, will you fit one on your new bike immediately or wait for the rattle first?

hi guys new to this fourum,long time rider first time 1000f owner.my bike also suffers this problem and im tackling it head on.this seems to be the best fix ive come by so far for more of a long term fix.i have a few questions about the sizes of your tensioner.
1. how long is the 6mm bright bar?
2. what are the legnths of the clevis (over all and from end to joint end and so on)
3. what is the spring out of that you used (looks like a valve spring and retainer to me lol)
thanks scott

Hey dragin, welcome to the world of 1000f CCTs.
The answer to your questions is sadly rather simple. I don't know!
I made no record drawing of the actual length or shape of the bar, the clevis end is a modified standard part which can be obtained from many places on line.
The spring is similar to a valve spring but actually slightly smaller in section and only about 3mm shorted than a 1000f valve spring. I just got lucky and found this one lying around at work. You are correct about the retainer though, that's exactly what it is.
The spring is only compressed about 5-7 mm so it's not applying a great deal of pressure but by the time the force is applied to the cam chain it's surprising how much force is transferred.
I had wanted to give the prototype a good 10K miles of testing before really being certain that it was going to be up to the job and in fact only did about 6K before loosing her to the scum but in that time I can definitely say that this set up works beyond any reasonable doubt and will be making another one in the not too distant future.
My new girl now has 19,300 miles on her an is just starting to show signs that the CCT may be starting to fade.
Please have a crack at making your own version, I'm sure everyone will be interested to see this modification repeated. You've just got to trust yourself and go for it.
Good luck.

.Hi Henry, I'm thinking the same re the source of the rattle. I'm working on a design for couple of springs to be made to take slack out of both upper and lower arms.
