Manual Cam Chain Tensioner Adjustment??

Recently installed a APE CCT on an 01 f4i and had a question about the proper adjustment. I hand tightened the adjustment bolt and then started it up and the noise was still there, so gave it another turn and locked it down. After riding yesterday there seems to be a diesel type noise at idle and somewhat through all rpm''s and what seems to be a lose of power at WOT. Is this noise mean I need to tighten it some more or possibly over tightened it? Thanks

I think it may be tight what I do is turn me main bolt until its snug and then screw down the locking nut. Since your located on the west side Id suggest hitting up True Methodz and let them take a look at it if your still having problems.

*for the f4i the oem cct is the way to go*

I adjust it while it is running. get it finger tight, then back off 1 turn, start te bike and listen while tightening. get to the point where the noise doesn't change when you turn it more, then back off 1/8 turn. that's just how i do it.

thanks, I'll try re adjusting it tonight. It feels that there is less power under WOT so that is rather annoying.

I had an 01 f4i with the same issue... Honda came out with different revisions and finally got it right. I installed mine and it fixed the problem.
