The drive chain for your motorcycle should have no more than a 1/2 of play in it. Place the chain with the motor shut off between your thumb and fore finger. if you can move it up or down anymore than a 1/2, then you'll need to tighten it. Adjust both sides of the chain tensioner equally, and you should be set.

Adjusting cam chain on 1980 susuki gs motocycle neen to know the proper proseedure to acjust chain


there should be no adjusting cause it is spring loaded .. if you have after market adjuster ! take the side cover off . you want to turn the crankshaft by hand . once you have done this . then have the nut free on the adjuster .roll crankshaft around wile hand tightening the adjuster .. you only want it hand tight. then tighten the nut . if you still hear chain slap ! tighten another 1/4 turn .. and that should be it !!

I am in the process of changing timing chains on a 2005 suzuki boulevard c50t. I was wondering what the maximum stretch of the chains are. I am thinking it might just be the tentioners too. The weird thing...


The cam chain it stretched, just like a drive chain. It should not have any tight spots, or loose spots. Replace the cam chain and look into aftermarket cam chain adjusters like APE. Chaz Moto DC
