Make sure both wheels are on the ground use a triangle or have someone balance the bike(standing beside it not on it) and then adjust the chain and have about 2 incehes of play. Make sure u get both sides.,,

SOURCE: chain needs to be 1/4

1/4" is too tight, you should have one inch minimum. Check it while the bike is upright sitting on the tires. Move the longest part of the chain up and down and you should have one to one and a half inches of play.

As a comparison, my BMW 650 has seven inches of suspension travel at the rear and my spec is 45 to 55mm which is about an inch and 3/4 to two inches.

How do I tighten the primary chain tentioner on my Harley Davidson Dyna wideglide


inside the primary cover, in the middle bottom part of the chain is a shoe assembly, loosen adjusting bolt to raise shoe which increases tension on chain, now if the chain will not adjust then possibly the chain & tensioner are worn & need replacement.

Chain adjustment


Just a guess, but beings you didn't give YEAR/MAKE/MODEL, that's all I can do.

IF it's the rear drive chain you're talking about (as opposed to the primary chain), get rear wheel off the ground.
With bike in neutral, rotate rear wheel until you find the tightest spot of the chain in the middle between the rear sprocket and the transmission sprocket.
Loosen axle nut, adjust rear axle adjusters evenly until slack is within spec.
Rotate rear wheel in normal direction of travel and see that chain is tracking true on sprocket. If not,adjust as needed with axle adjusters.
IF mechanical rear brake (instead of hydraulic rear brake), adjust brake.

Instructions
    • 1 Measure the chain's tension with a ruler. Move the center point of the bottom half of the drive chain with your hand. Take a measurement of the chain's movement as you push the chain up and down as far as it will go. The chain should have a free range of movement between 0.8 to 1.2 inches. If the chain's free range is greater than 1.2 inches, you need to tighten the chain. Alternatively, loosen the chain if it has less than 0.8 inches of free movement.
    • 2 Loosen the large nut on the left side of the rear axle with a 32 mm socket and a socket wrench. If more leverage is needed to loosen the nut, use a long-handled breaker bar.
    • 3 Loosen the chain adjuster blocks on both side of the rear swing arm with a pair of 10 mm wrenches. Hold the blocks' adjustment bolt's head steady with one wrench and loosen the bolt's lock nut with the other wrench.
    • 4 Turn both adjustment bolts an equal number of turns with a 10 mm wrench to adjust the chain's tension. Turn the adjustment bolts clockwise to loosen the chain, or counterclockwise to tighten the chain. Check that the edge of both chain adjuster blocks are evenly aligned with the adjustment marks imprinted on the swing arm.
    • 5 Check the chain's range of free movement again. Make adjustments as needed until the chain has a free range of movement between 0.8 and 1.2 inches.
    • 6 Hold the adjustment bolts steady with a 10 mm wrench and tighten their lock nuts against the chain adjuster blocks with a second 10 mm wrench. Tighten the axle nut to 72.5 foot-pounds with a 32 mm socket and a torque wrench. Check the chain's tension again.

How to fix my alighnment


Provided you have not been in an accident that has bent your frame,upper and lower triple tree, or forks, the only alignment you can make is to adjust your chain. If the the front wheel is not tracking with the back wheel you just have an improperly adjusted chain. On each side of the swing arm by the rear axle are two chain adjuster cam/wheels. The have numbered bump/stops. Both chain adjusters should be set in the same numbered bump/stop to align the front and rear chain sprockets and the front and rear wheel tracking. the adjusters are on the machine for the purpose of setting the amount of chain slack. Your chain should not be too tight or too loose. If you grab your chain in the middle and push it up and down, you should have a slack measurement of 1 1/4 inches from the bottom edge of the chain to the top edge of the chain. If the setting is off the best way to make the adjustment is to raise the rear wheel off of the ground. A race bike stand is very helpful for this and oiling and caring for your chain. Harbor freight tools sells a cheap rear stand for about $35 (buy the cheaper one piece non-collapseable stand). Pull out the cotter pin, loosen the axle bolt, turn both adjusters till you have the correct amount of slack and they are both set to the same number. Tighten the axle and recheck the slack. If you notice when spinning the rear wheel that the chain goes tight then slack, you have a stretched section of chain. If this is the case you should replace the chain and any worn sprockets at this time.

How to adjust primary chain and clutch on 04 1200c thanks


First, let's adjust the primary chain first. Remove the upper inspection hole cover. Stick your finger in the hole, find the chain, and raise and lower it. With the engine cold, the chain should have 3/8" to 1/2" up and down movement. To adjust this, look underneath the primary. You'll see a bolt and a lock nut. under the primary. Loosen the lock nut and turn the adjuster to adjust the tension in the chain. Adjusting the bolt upwards tightens the chain, lowering it loosens the chain. If you get the chain too tight, lower the chain until you get too much movement in it and then raise the adjuster again.

On the clutch, remove the clutch release mechanism cover. Remove the spring and the lock nut. Find the cable adjuster in the middle of the clutch cable. Move the cover up or down, break the lock nut, and adjust the cable adjuster inwards until you get a lot of slack in the cable. Turn the adjuster bolt at the relaese mechanism counterclockwise until it stops. Then turn it back clockwise 1/2 turn. Install the locknut and spring and cover. Go back and adjust the cable adjuster outwards until you have about an 1/8" freeplay. Lock the lock nut and replace the cover.

Good Luck

Need to know how to adjust the primary chain on the harley davidson


Remove the small access plate on the primary cover. Inside you'll see the primary chain adjuster and shoe. Loosen the bolt and slide it up or down to adjust the chain. Moving the shoe up tightens the chain. Adjust the chain so that you've got between 5/8 and 7/8 in up and down movement at the middle of the upper run of the chain with the engine cold.

Good Luck

Loose chain


Loosen the axle nut and the lock nuts for the chain adjusters on each side of the swingarm. Turn the adjuster to move the rear wheel to the rear to tighten the chain.

You want to adjust the chain so that you have 1 inch up and down play in the chain. By this I mean 1/2" above center and 1/2" below center of the chain as it sits on the bike, 1" up and down inclusive. Adjustment should be made at the point where the chain is the tightest. Roll the rear wheel while checking the chain tension. Find the tightest point to make your adjustment.

Move both chain adjusters the same amount to keep wheel straight within the swingarm. Once adjusted, roll the wheel a couple of turns and check the adjustment of the chain again. Once finished, tighten adjuster lock nuts and retorque the axle nut to 50 foot pounds of torque.

Good Luck, Steve

SUZUKI INTRUDER 125, WHICH CHAIN SHOULD I BUY


the chain type is 428. take chain off and count # of links.give those 2 #s to parts guy. when you replace a worn chain,the front and rear sprockets should be replaced at the same time, because worn sprockets and a new chain will cause accelerated chain wear. count # of teeth on sprockets & give those 2#s to the parts guy also. if you want a longer wearing chain, buy one w/ the highest tensile strength,once again, parts guy can help you find that.dont forget,lube & adjust chain as needed.

CHIAN ADJUSTMENT


I'm very guilty of not adjusting my chain the entire time I've been riding - which is 2503 miles. I was looking over my bike and the chain is hanging low on the top and rubbing in to the chain guard. I don't have the time to get a replacement cotter pin to attempt adjusting it myself. So I have four questions: 1) How much should it cost for a shop to adjust my chain? 2) How does this compare to replacing the chain and sprockets? 3) How hard is it to adjust the chain yourself? The most important thing to me is being able to keep the alignment appropriately through the whole procedure. 4) What is the highest reliability chain (longest endurance) for a bike that rides a lot of highway miles. I described chain adjustment on my bike --http://totalmotorcycle.com/BBS/viewtopic.php?p=64704&highlight#64704,,
