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.

2012 ninja 250r cam chain tensioner cleaning


Never heard of the cam chain getting dirty. There is a mechanism on the front of the engine to tension the chain on that bike I believe. I would try tightening the tension a bit to see if that will help.

Tightening primary chain on kawasaki vulcan


You probably want to adjust your cam drive chain. It's the only one that can be adjusted. They are all different but the adjuster is located on the back side of the cylinder but find out how to adjust your particular model before messing with it.

My cam chain is rattley how do i tighten it ive a 89 zxr 400


There is a cam chain tensioner on the ZXR 400. It sounds like you need a new cam chain.

Important Note: The cam cahin tensioner is held on by the two bolts that hold the clutch cable bracket underneath the timing cover. Never loosen these bolt and re tighten them. If you need to undo them, remove the cam chain tensioner and reset it.

Cam chain noise on a CBR1100 from 1998 Can this be ajust ? if so where is the bracket on the engine


Cam chain normally must be replaced, but sometimes cam chain tensioner may have some space to put more tension to tighten the cam chain. If you know how to access it then go for it. Good advise?

Need to tighten the timing chain


It has an automatic cam chain tensioner. If you are getting cam chain rattle, I would look at worn guides/chain.
