Broke down and pulled the CCT out and pulled the adjuster out two clicks. Much better now. One would think Kawasaki would recall the CCT. If nothing else provide a stronger spring. Anyway, my motor is much quieter now.:thumbsup:

It's the stock dampner from my 2011 ZX10R. Bike has about 13,000 miles on it. Aggressive street riding and track days. Nothing happened to the dampner. SB Suspension is rebuilding it to race specs.

You guys are luck SkyDork is away for a little while....

Peterd, he means a manual tensioner, not damper.

OP, I recently did a valve adjustment and followed the service manual which says start at 4 clicks. I'm now out to 7 and it's still noisy. How many clicks are you at?

I really didn't look to see how many clicks it was out when I removed CCT. I just pulled it out two more

so again do they not make a manual tensioner for the gen4?

I know you can click them out the problem is the frequency of the of vibrations at high rpm and disengage the locking paw.
Not a big deal at 10000+ rpms when theres all kinds of oil pressure but if it happens under a low rpm situation like dropping gears to get into turn one and theres little oil pressure.
Now you have a catastrophic failure.

I probably will go with a manual tensioner when I do a valve adjustment. I'm ok with the auto CCT for now>
