If you're taking it off to replace the chain with a new one you can just cut it off. But, i would recomend a chain breaker. And if you are changing chains don't just yank the old one out! You will double your work. Use the old one as a guide to pull the new chain around the front sprocket. Zip-tie or lightly wire together. Else wise you're shoving your hand in places it might not go or it's cover pulling time. Yes...a voice of experience.

Don't ever break & relink a timing chain on a vehicle like yours.

You don't have to remove the crank just to replace the timing chain. says

like jeshern85 says, just remove whatever parts are blocking access. I usually wrap the chain around the crank sprocket then pull the chain up through the cylinder with a coat hanger.

Something you can try....

In the above illustration, item #10 is listed as "Chain Tension Adjuster".

You can try adjusting this to see if it helps.

How do i remove my suzukie dr200se chain all together?

There could be a master link with a clip. Look on both sides of the chain as the clip is normally on the outside but not always. Remove the clip and master link.

If there is no clip and the chain is not going to be reused then cut it off (in one piece it stays around the swing arm). There are chain cutting tools or a saw of some kind will do.

If you don't have a master link with a clip (Factory OEM usually don't) and your needing to save that chain you will need to purchase a tool that presses out the pins. You would also need to purchase a master link that fits the size of that chain (not all chains are made equal).

A chain tool is good to have though. Say you purchase a chain and it has 120 links and you only need 118 then you're going to need to remove some links. Also the tool kits come with a special pin when using pressed on master links (better than the clip master lnks).

Remember when installing a clip on a master link that the round part goes on facing the direction of the chain travel with the open part facing the rear.

Chain broke im replaceing it how do i get the new chain thru the transmition over the front sporocket

You will have to remove the front sprocket cover, best check carefully the chain did not cause any damage inside the cover to the crankcase when it broke, also check the sprocket for signs of ware as this may contribute to early failure of the new chain, paul

I have a suzuki 125gh and live in a remote location in costa rica. Good reliable info and maintanence is hard to come by much less available manuals. My rear whell is adjusted all the way back and the...

Yes you can punch some links out, , run the wheel and axle all the way forward first, to make sure how many links to remove.
You have to remove two links at a time, use a new joiner.
The quickest test of a chain is if you can pull it away from the rear sprocket, it is becoming worn.

How do i tighten the timing chain on a 1985 suzuki 550L

the timing chain has an automatic tensioner at the rear of the engine cylinders, if the chain is loose the tensioner is either defective or the chain is stretched to the point the tensioner can no longer take up the normal slack created by wear.

Is it possible to use an o-ring chain on a 1997 suzuki gs500, or can I only use a non-"o-ring" type chain? I've got an o-ring chain that doesn't have a master link and so I can't replace the old chain...

You can use the o-ring chain but make sure the lube you use on the chain is o-ring compatible.Some will affect the o-rings in the chain.Only way to get the chain on is to remove the rear wheel.Its not a hard job.1st time you do it,have a pen and paper handy and draw every washer,spacer and backet as you are looking at it.That way when it goes back together, you have a redy ref. to look at.Make sure you draw each shape of each piece.Draw the axle out very slowly so if anything drops,you know where it came from.Also,lay out every item in the order that it was assembled on a clean flat surface.Work slowly.Hope this helps

1982 Suzuki GS650G timing chain install

it is possible to unlink the timing chain. I dont really recommend it, but I have done it before with no problems. if you can get ahold of a small chain breaker you can use that to press one of the pins out of the chain. you may be able to find one at a hardware store. then, use the same breaker to press the pin back into the chain. you MUST be sure that it fits tightly though, so the pin doesnt try to back out later down the road. this is what I did...for a loose fitting pin, I used a hammer with a punch to "mushroom" the ends of the pin so it cant back out. I had a friend hold the metal end of a small sedge hammer against the chain, while I used the punch and hammer on the other end, then we switched sides. Im not too familiar with your engine, but in general, you dont have to remove the crank to replace the timing chain. usually, just removing the clutch basket gives you enough access to replace it. on certain models though, the cases may be in the way, and removing the crank may be necessary. but before you break the chain or pull the crank, check to see if its possible to install a chain by just removing the clutch basket, and if necessary, the gears on the end of the crank.

According to the service manual it is an RK525SMOZ7 with 110 links. I think the 525 part is the key.

Please rate this answer. Thanks ptk36!

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.

Honda CBR 1000 -87 slacky oil pump chain

possibly but there should be a lock on the chain if think there has to be a way to adjust it id re look the chain and if not id get the dimentions of the chain and look for one on the net but make sure this one has a lock unless it will rattle so much that the lock will fail and the cain will come undone and that could cause one hell of a wreck or a ride bud
