01' Cam Chain Tensioner install tool?

Looking for a LINK for installing a Yamaha Cam Chain Tensioner.
How do I pre-tension the Yamaha CCT? Do I need to? Do I need to buy a 'special tool' to do the task of pre-tensioning?

you use your hands and push it in. Then use the the retainger clip, to keep it fully in. Once the tensioner is installed, it will release and tension accordingly.

What causes the retainer clip to release after the tensioner is installed?

just do a dry run, install it and then remove it. You'll see the that the tensioner clip released.

Talking 01's Dont need or use a CCT tool!

After more research. The 98-01 R1's dont need or use a CCT tool.

I would like to find a video or more info. on removal and installation of the Yamaha 'Cam Chain Tensioner'. (CCT)

The 01 only requires a narrow flat blade screwdriver. remove the cap bolt, turn the tensioner clockwise to retract it - when you remove the screwdriver it will typically release, and if it doesn't, a light tap on the outside will cause it to release.

Checkout my 2000 engine rebuild thread:

Do the carbs have to come off the bike to make the CCT swap?
