Is changine to the manual cct fairly simple?
I've recently had some pretty big oil leaks, one of which involved the cam chain retention bolt and its grommet. Since then (two days ago) I've noticed my bike is making a lot more "ticking" noise than it was.
Is changing to the manual cct as simple as :
remove the auto
bolt on the manual, and grommet,
tighten to spec (whatever that is?)
Do you need to rip the valve cover off?
