it can be a bit fiddly since access to the cct is rather limited its recommended to have a ratchet wrench since getting to the 8mm bolts is very difficult

step 1 remove the crank case and ziptie the chain together so it wont jump any teeth while removing the cct

step 2 remove any plastics that are in the way of getting to the cct.

step 3 get a ratchet wrench 8mm to get those 2 bolts out you wont be able to get them out with a regular ratchet since the space you have to work with is limited pull them out and the cct make sure to check the cct gasket if you can reuse it or not

step 4 make a small groove in the 8mm bolts so you can fit a flat head screwdriver in this will make it easier to install and take off again if you ever need to

step 5 install the new cct and gasket make sure to pull the small T pin out once its bolted in so the chain is under tension and reverse the removal procedure

it's pretty standard you just dont have much room to work with thats the only main issue really and be sure you dont skip any timing
