Re: Ok so I cheated today and paid a garage to do my mcct's

Those who have suffered the timing being 180 out have found the bike runs beautifully bellow 5k, even better than when the timings correct. However above that the air box can’t cope with the narrower firing order and the bike falters. Hope it’s good fella. It's been a while since I managed to get t...

Re: MCC adjusters v Honda OE?

I may well be wrong but as I understand it the MCCT'S are the better more reliable option and dont need constant adjustment. The ACCT'S have a good chance to ruin your engine if they go so for me it was worth it just for that alone.

Re: Ok so I cheated today and paid a garage to do my mcct's

Thanks for all the positive replies folks. Those that recognize they don't have the time or skill to do the job right are smarter to find a qualified mechanic to do the job rather then rush it or bumble though the job. Point is, nothing wrong with putting a job in hands you trust... I completely agr...

Re: Ok so I cheated today and paid a garage to do my mcct's

I had ran a bottle of silkolene through the bike for carb icing but it didn't make a great deal of difference. There really is no carb icing issues with this bike. The whole thing has come from a misunderstanding of the carb heat lines. Two things shoot down the icing theory. First the lines shut o...

Re: Ok so I cheated today and paid a garage to do my mcct's

How much labour was involved in the MCCT's if you dont mind me asking? Good to hear the carb clean has helped. Im on the first tank of injector cleaner additive on mine. Pretty sure the po wasnt riding it in recent years and can use a carb clean. After that i'll do the same and get a garage to do i...

Ok so I cheated today and paid a garage to do my mcct's

But I'm so glad I did.... Not only do i not have to worry every time I go out about my acct's going pop but I had been telling them about suffering from quite bad carb fart at around 3.5k revs. This morning it seemed to be happening around 2.5k revs as well which made for an interesting ride through...

Re: Insurance add ons

Cheers Pete, I think pretty much the same way and have always took what cover I could. It was only seeing that nearly a third of my quote was add ons that made me think which bits are actually worth having.
