cam chain tensioner

My tensioner(s) is going out. Should i go manual or stick with stock automatics. Also, is this something that is able to be done easily or does the honda man have to do it? Any info would be appreciated:BangHead:

are they hard to replace? I don't want to make a bad problem worse.

Easy to do yourself, if not Patrick can install while you wait.

A few guys insert a longer bolt in back of the ACCT to quiet it down and effectively giving you a failsafe against failure. (more info is at cbrworld.net) If it's just making noise, it is normal albeit annoying and loud... The stock ACCT might last 500 miles before it gets noisy or 5k+, gamble at best and a bit more expensive than a MCCT.

I just reset the OEM one.. the ticking noise will go away immediately. Not hard to work with since they are mounted within easy reach, you just have to remove some things to get to it. Like said, Patrick and Motorcycles Unlimited is always around if you dont feel comfortable doing the work.

I had engine failure due the cct years ago on my v45 magna. The superhawk has 2 so I am very leary. I am very mechanically inclined but never fooled with one before. Gathering info before I make a decision.
