Hello from Germany
But to see that I would have to take half the bike apart, to get to the motor and take cct out to check for the dot. Right?
No. The color-dot will be on the top side of the CCT. The CCT is just under a panel, and you should be able to see it with a strong light, and maybe an inspection mirror. There is no
need to remove the CCT from the engine to inspect it for the color-dot. If you replace the CCT, there is a gasket under it that should be replaced then, also.
Otherwise, borrow one USB borescope for a while, to see the CCT. New, they only cost about US$45.00 now, and I am always finding new uses for my USB borescope. If you buy one, you might get get it with five meters of fiber (cable). I recommend having one with LED illumination and manual focus features. Bring your own phone or laptop, for a display screen. The camera/cable is flexible (think- wet noodle), so you tape the end to a stiff wire (baling wire) to guide the camera end into small places. I doubt that you will need a borescope to see the CCT, though; it's just good to have that tool available to you.
2008 FJR1300A - Pirelli Angel GT (Spec A) tires, RDL seat, TPMS, GPS digital speedometer (Amazon ~US$28.00).
P.S. Life is too short, and health is too valuable, to ride on cheap parade-duty tires.
