    I think I have the same problem. The chain seems loose and there is a rattling sort of noise when riding. The website given in the reply is down. Any more help?

Hi my name is Scott & I need to know.How do i tighten the chain on my bike.I Know I got to loosen the axle bolt,I need to know what to do with the chain tension bolts please HELP...

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 Scott. I hope this helps you. Love them dirt bikes.

I have a knock when the bike gets hot checked the valves they are good can i tighten the timing chain and if so how

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

I have a 1998 chevrolet pickup .i need to know the head bolts torque specifications for a 350 so i can put the heads back on it

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.

I do not know how to get the chain off of my bike does anyone know how to take it apart.

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.

Razor Electirc Scooter, the chain keeps falling off, I cannot see how to tighten

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.

Go to any reputable shop/mechanic; you probably need a new chain and/or sprocket...OR Possibly just a chain adjustment. Don't wait around, do it asap, I wouldn' t play with this particular problem.

Sprocket problem

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 and do it yourself.,,,
