Kawi did the recall on my 16 a few weeks ago, swapped out the manual for automatic. At first it was still noisy, but after a ride it seemed to do it's job and not nearly as noisy anymore.

|th3r3ds0x||Mine 2016 was quite bad, started around 500 miles on the clock. Got an APE manual tensioner. Definitely worth the 90$.|

|EJR||Yeah, I was thinking valve adjustments on cylinder 4. Really though, the camshaft gears are marked on the outside with either an IN (intake) or EX (exaust). The markings are facing the frame, so you may have to use a mirror to see them with a flashlight. In the manual it will tell you the position these markings (they are underlined on the gear itself) they have to be in relative to the top of the head when set to 1/4 on the timing gear. In other words, you set the timimg gear to 1/4, and place the camshafts in the head so that the underlined IN and EX underlines are parallel to the top of the head. This will ensure you never screw the timing and is a good sanity check after you are done adjusting valves etc.|

I've installed a few of the APE manual CCT's I've never removed the cams.
It's a easy like 1/2hr job. Remove the old one, install the new, adjust, done.
Nothing more to it.
Might have to remove the one rad hose, no need to drain rad, just remove hose
for extra room.
If you are removing cam's for valve adjust the best thing to do is to just
mark cam/chain with paint pen put a couple on a couple of bungee cords on the chain to keep tension.

Unless you're doing your valve adjustment at the same time, I wouldn't be taking out cams to fit a CCT.

|EJR||No, the position of the pistons will not affect the tension on the chain. The way I did it which is the easiest and guarantees accuracy is to clean the oil off the cam sprockets and the chain and put a line in white out or permanant marker across the sprocket and chain. Then just remove the cams, do your work, put them back in and adjust the teeth on the chain until the lines line up. The only thing you need to be careful of is dropping the chain down in the motor. Let me know if you have any questions, I know the motor and the work pretty good.|
