Mine has the white dot. Can anyone tell us what the different dots mean?
No sure what dots mean but mine is yellow
How many miles have you done?
I've done around 4000 miles
And it failed?
Well cam chain was ticking at low rpm but I have taken cap of tensioner and with Allen key tightened it about 1/8 of a turn and it has stopped now
I am on number 8. Colour of dot is the version. Will have to check colour on mine tomorrow to tell you the latest one. Think it was purple or blue
I have done 16k
I've noticed my tracer sounds very rattly when first started for about a mile or so
S2 with a white dot was supposed to be a revised one i think! 2015.
The latest ones have a brown dot.
my cct still has the white spot on ?? march 2015 model has there been a recall on this
It probably just wants tightening up a little if it has the white dot.
There wasn't a recall as such but some models with a red dot or 2 black dots had a technical bulletin. Basically they'd be replaced free of charge regardless of warranty status.
Not sure but when I finally managed to show the noise to my dealer , they had no doubt the cct was fucked and the guy mentioned oil pressure .. I did change the oil to full synth from putoline with oem filter , after that everything was smoother incl gear changes etc.. very nice and recommended by them the dealer, even though I asked for Yamalube, so they need to deal with this
On my case the issue comes and goes, so I think the fact the oil type changed (recomended by them) must have had some influence on my cct failure , could have also just been coincidence.. its sucks, I hope there is no damage to the engine
Wont be any damage if its just rattled. Itd only damage it if it was so loose that it skipped a tooth, n you'd know about that :D.
I think the later CCT's have an oil way in them that the earlier ones didnt?
Oliver Taylor I think so, not sure, but according to some guy in the fz09 forum they are different, look at this picture
