There should be a spring loaded pressure bar with a external set bolt you loosen a little to let the spring push the bea against the chain.

SOURCE: bench start kv 550
Assuming it's a KZ550, first off, your gonna need the battery, ign module, rectifier/regulator, and ign. coils. There should be a wiring harness (5 wires or so) coming from the alt housing (on left crank end) with 2 yellows one pink(to rectifier),red/blk(ign power to cdi) & (light green is neutral light- not needed). Next, assuming there's no points, there should be a 2 or 3 wire harness (usually blue/brown) from ign triggers (on right crank end) these need to go to CDI module. Then make wires from CDI module to coils. Don't forget to ground everything to motor case. Also if it's electric start only, your gonna need the start solonoid ,too. If you want a detailed wiring diagram, let me know what color wires & how many there is on the rectifier/regulator and CDI and the motor and I can email you a diagram.

SOURCE: Fuel pump location
If the carbs are leaking fuel then the float pins inside are not sealing ad the weight of the fuel in the tank is pushing out. your bike should not have a pump. it should be gravity fed. if your bike sat for a long time and you did not drain the carbs before putting it in storage the fuel goes stale and creates a varnish like residue inside the carbs. unfortunately the only way to clean it is to disassemble and clean them. not something a casual rider should attempt. it is something that should be left to a mechanic. removing them from the bike could save you some money, but not much. taking the bike in to a bike shop is your best bet if you have never done carburator work before. the mech can clean, reassemble and sync. usuall cost around 300-350 parts and labor at a good shop. I used to run a motorcycle service department. if you can do it yourself great. just dont get in over your head. it is harder for someone to pick up where you left off working from a bag full of peices the to be the one who took it apart and remember where everything goes. good luck

You didn't say WHY the cam / valve timing needs to be reset. For some reason I get the feeling someone told you that resetting was needed and so you are asking how. Obviously, you may have installed new pistons and that is why the resetting is needed. In either event, when the cam timing is set the valve timing is also set. Other than adjusting valve lash, setting the cam sets the valve timing. Below is a web site where you can do a free download of a factory service manual. The process is not hard but having a manual will be more help and faster help than I can give online.

Testimonial: "Thanks for your reply. I've been to the web site before and downloaded the manual already. It does not really cover the situation I have. There also seems to be a lack of compression with the bike. A friend has lent me a workshop manual so I will try that in the mean time. Thanks again "
