Circled red is the MCCT and circled blue is the stock ACCT.

2003 and later ACCT's are fine, the MCCT maybe unbreakable but it's not user proof. I'd rather have my cam chain tensioner do the work than me guessing if it's tight enough or when it needs adjustment.

ah well bike is at lecap any how now so will see :D its a 2005 btw
So much of win it hurts! ^.^

02/02/12 - RIP Glen - the Arrow of Elliot and the little man with the big heart that truly was larger than life.

You have touched us and left us better for having known you - even if it was only briefly.

For grabbing the moment and living the day It's been way too early that you were taken away

I bought one but never fitted it after reading extensive threads, also found out that the later models are fine.
If you want mine, it's for sale.
