There are usually marks on the tension bolt brackets. Adjust each side until they are even and the chain has about a 1/4 inch to a 1/2 inch of slack in either direction at the chains longest span. Tighten the axle bolt securely and take it for a ride. Thanks for checking out Fixya.com Scott. I hope this helps you. Love them dirt bikes.
Have no idea what the bike is except its a HONDA so hard to give accurate answers! in most newer bike the cam chains would be auto tensioned so depending on what your bike is possibly could tighten it manually but unlikely
if the bike is old ?? then the cam chain can become over stretched and still slap about no matter how it is tensioned
also likely knock cause would be piston slap which occurs when the piston and cylinder gets bit old in the tooth
I would need to know age of the bike but more importantly what model of the bike as us mechanics at least need to know if has 1 cylinder or 4 cylinders to help you guys
There is a sequence of tightening the head bolts in a specific order in 2 passes, the preferred method is to tighten all bolts to 22 ft lbs, then add 75 degrees turn to long bolts, 65 degrees to medium bolts, and 55 degrees to short bolts. If you need the picture go to a library and use alldata to print it out.
Bike chains have one link that you can take apart. Look at all of the links and you will find one that looks different. you can use a straight screwdriver to push the removable keeper off the link and it will come apart so you can remove the chain.

If the chain is too long than shorten it by using a chain breaker. Or you don't have a chain breaker take the scooter to a bike or more preferable a electric scooter shop and have them do it. The problem could also be your chain tensioner check to see if it's tightening the chain.
new bike owner here. i just got aatk 700 and love it. she needs some loving though. i've gotten the chain tightened due to the chain clicking or popping at low rpms but now i've noticed a new problem. the chain seems to be clicking in a pattern bout every second or sooner. the guys at the local bike shop said i had a bad sprocket when i went to have the chain tightened the first time. does this sound right? i have heard that the local bike shop has dicked around a few people and they seem a little pricey at 350 for the repair.
anyone have a similar problem or can you confirm that this chain 'popping' or 'clicking' noise is in fact due to a worn out chain sprocket, or do i just need a new chain. i know that the chain is about ready to be replaced
i have 22,000 on the bike.
,It sounds like one or both of the sprockets could be worn. If you change out a sprocket you might as well change out both. Price out the parts at bikebandit.com and do it yourself.,,,
