I can help here, thanks to Quantum and Bloo!

Pretty simple, bro:
1. Take out the OEM.
2. Unscrew the adjuster screw on the APE cct completely out.
3. Install the APE cct and tighten down the 2 securing screws.
4. Finger tighten the adjust until you feel some resistance (you'll notice it).
5. Start the bike up. I let mine run for about 15 seconds. Shut it back off.
6. Finger tighten the adjust some more until resistance is felt.
7. Start the bike back up and run to operating temp.
8. Adjust the screw when bike is fully warm.

Too tight = whining noise (it'll be obvious)
Too loose = excessive "tick"
Proper adjustment = very mild to no "tick"

Boom bam!

Ok, I'm sold! It's now at the top of my "to do" list.

Works like a charm! Except I had to remove the radiator hose to get to the cct. No big.

Nope. Plug it after you unhook it. I had a bucket by my side in case I lost any, but I barely lost any at all. Took my side fairing off, unhooked the radiator hose, and by that time you're halfway done already.
