Default Cct,cctl,honda ever get it right???

I called my local Honda dealer to see whether they offered any other variants to the OEM hydraulic CCTL, and they did not. The parts desk did mention that there has been several 'versions' to the OEM CCTL. Old CCTLs have been discontinued and replace by 'fixed' or at hopefully at least 'improved' OEM parts. With that said, it is obvious that Honda has recognized that the original CCTL was crap and needed to be replaced.

Does anyone know if they ever got it right?

I would like to put an OEM automatic tensioner on, but don't want to put another piece of **** on my bike that will cause the CC to rattle in a few thousand miles. I know there is a lot of talk about the APE manual tensioner on this forum, but would like to take advantage of an automatic CCTL if it is reliable.

Any info would be appreciated!!!!

Im pretty sure the current ones still wear out, just not as fast as the original would be. I just stopped at the dealer today to get a quote on replacing mine because its starting to get bad with 9k miles. I asked about the manual, and I was told not to get it because by the time the auto would go out id be on a different bike lol... which is possible.
