Manual CCT Help
EDIT: Problem Solved - Loose spark plug lead
I just finished installing a APE manual CCT on my CBR F2 ('94). I took it out for a spin, and could here a turbo-like whine when I rolled off the throttle (only noticeable when bike is moving). From what I read, this means the CCT is too tight. I backed off the CCT to just past where the (CCT) noise stops, and took it out again - engine sounds great. I have since ridden the bike for about 50K.
I hopped on the bike yesterday, and after riding it for a few minutes, I noticed a quiet ticking sound (the higher the revs, the faster the ticking) - after about 6/7K RPM I could not here it anymore, but I think it was just being masked by my exhaust at that point. Then, about 5 minutes later, the sound disappeared. I parked the bike, and started it back up a couple hours later, and the ticking was back - I only rode it 5 minutes to get home, so I didn't give it a chance to see if the ticking would disappear again.
I was thinking it's possible the CCT is a little too loose now? I have not tried tightening it yet, I though I would post this up first, in hopes someone has an idea for me.
Any incite would be very much appreciated.

you know what in any case you should put some blue threadlocker just in case on the bolts they work really well
