CCT Updated again?
« on: October 11, 2017, 07:28:13 pm »
I noticed when perusing some parts fiches that Yamaha has fitted a new PN CCT starting with the 2017 model.  Looking at other year models, this latest part number supersedes both the original Gen 1 and  later Gen 2 CCT part numbers with yet another one. Anyone know what they have changed on the CCT this time?

Can't answer but glad Yamaha is still trying to improve the design.  Now, waiting for early adopters to let us know...
Current: 2012 Super Tenere - White/Red Speedblocks

why not just go with a manual CCT and forget it.
When I rebuilt the top end on my 2012, the manual cct didn't even budge after 40k km...

2012 ST1200 Do it all..with a couple of mods.
2015 FJ09 Comfortable hooligan

Usually if there is a major change the first three letters/numbers will change like it did between 13 & 14 models. By changing the 00 to 01 that could be something as simple as a different color. Take 2BS-12210-XX-XX. The 2BS tells you it's a 14 model part, the 12210 means it's a CCT and the XX-XX usually means a minor change such as color. Someone will have to compare the two in order to know for sure.

Thanks, I've also heard that the same design might be sourced from a different supplier and given a p/n change to keep track.

The K&N filter person I spoke with was REALLY frustrated that the company didn't do this, but it was after they found their new supplier had changed oil filter baseplates from concave to convex.

Based on my experience working for companies that manufacture items,  the main reason for a new part is cost reduction,  not an improved design.  A new part from Yamaha doesn't necessarily mean it's a better part.
