    There's is probably more than one way to install your APE CCT but this is the way I think it would be the safest to get the job done.

    First thing to do is to unwrap your APE CCT and make sure the adjuster goes in and out freely (4mm allen). Then unwind the adjuster all the way to allow it to go in the engine and clear the frame.

    1. Remove the LH side engine case cap using a 14mm allen socket (same as front wheel) and remove the 6mm bolt with a 5mm allen. A 19mm socket is required to turn the engine over CCW. Turn until the timing marks line up inside the small hole




    2. Use some tape to protect the frame over the CCT. First remove the inner bolt, toward the middle of the engine.



    3. Here I will suggest you to go an extra step. Removing the RH side cover will make sure the chain doesn't skip a tooth and it will make it much easier to adjust the chain. I use my plier and some duct tape on the tip of the pliers to gently wedge between the engine case and the CCT slider.




    4. You can now remove the last bolt from the CCT.

    5. It is now time to slide your APE CCT in. Make sure the adjuster is all the way out. It won't go it if not all the way out. You can use the 2 bolts to hold the gasket in place then make sure the adjuster sit against the engine properly and start the bolts by hand and tight them up.




    Now here's the most critical part. There's a fair amount of drag on the CCT thread and getting a feel of when it touch is a bit tricky. The way I did it was by moving the timing chain on the slider until it get tight (you can now remove the pliers from holding the slider). When you get to that point stop and spin the engine with the ratchet keeping track of the chain play.




    Our bike are relatively new now so the chain should not be stretch too much with a lot of variation. Once you feel happy with it back up the adjuster 1/2 turn as APE instruction says. If you move the adjuster and not the nut... 3 flat = 1/2 turn.

    All you have left is to bring the jam nut against the adjuster and tight it up. Make sure the adjuster do not move. Keep holding the adjuster with the allen key.

    All pretty much done now. Install the cover back on and don't forget to reinstall the end cap and timing mark bolt on the other side... nothing worse than hitting the starter button with the ratchet still in place!

    Start the bike and pay attention to the cam chain noise... shouldn't have any by now

    Hope it help. Like I said at the beginning, there's more than one way to do it.

    Did you reuse the gasket on the engine cover or did you purchase a new one?

    Should have mine in a few days. Thanks for the write-up Marthy. I'm sure it'll be invaluable in getting this thing installed. I'll post up progress if I have any experiences different than yours.
