So, my answer would be to set it on the loose side and forget about it for 10,000 kms. I have regularly popped the valve cover to check the CCT, and the adjustment required is minimal. FWIW I have cut a longer internal rod for the CCT so that if the ratchet ever fails, the plunger cannot retract enough that the chain can skip a tooth.
l think this is a great idea, can you please post details?

I'm glad you guys are having success with this CCT. For the few thousand kms I had it it was so quiet and enjoyable to ride.

No reason why it shouldn't, it's all the same for all the 4cyl MVs. I plan on putting one in the 12' Brutale before too long as well.

Some would say yes; some would say no.

Depends on your ability to adjust the manual tensioner over time.

Yea Ive done a Jetprime pump,Samco hose kit with clamps, Muzzy fans, Brembo wheels, full radial brake conversion and all miantanance on my bike. Id say an adjustment every 5k to 10k would not be a problem. Thank you Sir for your advice
