Mine made this noise at 200 miles and I took it back to the dealer twice they kept telling me to just ride it and it could be breaking in or it's a Kawi they do that. Wrong. Whatever they did the noise went away and she has 4k miles on it now and still no noise.

:mod_smilie_+1: Mr. Wonka's got the right idea! Glad to see you around, sir. Your absence has been extensive. You must work on that lol
Just been busy busy lately. I'll try and make a come back!

This may be true on the gen4s. Mine is a gen2 and I don't see a way to replace the cct without removing the hose. I should have mentioned that. My bad.

In the video I have previously loosened the lock nut and inserted a cut-off Allen key into the shaft of the CCT.
To adjust it, I firstly back it off until I clearly hear the tick (twice in the video) and then advance it around 1/2 a turn from when the tick disappears and then tighten the lock nut.
The reason for 1/2 a turn: Adjuster thread pitch 1.25 mm, OEM CCT tooth pitch 1.0 mm, therefore 1/2 a turn = 0.625 of the original CCT step, ensuring that it isn't too tight.

I'm going to bump Quantum's post up since multiple people are about to install an APE manual cct into there 10r's. This is a perfect post to hear/see how to adjust it.

Make sure to rep Quantum for his post above and for all the info/advice he's given in this thread!
