Question about 1995 Yamaha XJR 400
If you need to tighten your cam chain then it sounds like the automatic tensioner might need loooking at as it isn't functioning correctly, or your chain needs changing if the tensioner is working fine.
Tensioner is located at the back of the cylinder block below the carbs: remove the carbs and unscrew the bolts holding the tensioner to the block. Once removed check the tensioner has extended and moves freely on the spring. if needed strip it down and clean the mechanism and rebuild, should be pretty self explanitary how it comes and/goes together once its off the bike.
