If you want the exact torque spec you'll need a service manual for the bike. Generally the countershaft sprocket nut gets 100 ft/lbs or more and also has a locking device on it, most likely a washer you bend after the sprocket is tight.

95 gpz chain tighten how to


hey Dominico,
This is the way PROFESSIONAL mechanics do a chain/sprocket check and drive chain alignment and tension.. Proper chain tension is very important to the life of your chain and sprockets and performance of your bike. First, you need to check to see if the chain/sprockets need replacing. (Chain and sprockets are ALWAYS replaced as a set (-all-3)..if you replace a chain on worn sprockets.. the chain will stretch out QUICK.. and if you put new sprockets with a worn chain.. the sprockets will be worn out QUICK too!!) ...To do this..the bike needs to be on the center stand or bike stand...NOT on the side stand...
...now...--remove the chain guard-- next..Sprocket check time - take one hand and squeeze the chain (grab the chain above and below the swingarm) at the point between the axle and the swingarm bolt.. as hard as possible. to take all the slack out of the chain and put the tension completely around the back sprocket.. while you are squeezing the chain as hard and tight as possible.. - with your other hand - try to lift/pull the chain off the rear sprocket.. IF you can pull the chain off enough to see if there is a .200" or 5mm max. gap between the chain and sprocket - under the chain... or MORE THAN A HALF a tooth groove under the chain..or the chain pulls up more than two teeth...OR the teeth on either sprocket are "pointed thin" or rounded inside....you need to replace the chain/sprockets.
...ONCE you are sure the chain/sprockets are good..its time to CORRECTLY align and adjust the chain tension. Loosen the axle nut.. DO NOT remove it.. now - tap it gently to make sure its loose...loose the chain adjuster nuts.. back them off a good bit, but do not remove them...you may,also need to loose the rear brake caliper mounts ..you should be able to move the rear wheel forward and backward with your hand.(this is to assure you have sufficient "looseness" to make the proper adjustment...NOW - pull the rear tire backwards until it stops.. - run the adjuster nut(s) until they are just snug..ALIGNMENT - This is CRITICAL - (did you remove the chain guard yet?) - do that now. You must be able to see down the entire length of the chain (above the swingarm)..The chain MUST RUN IN A STRAIGHT LINE!! .. The little marks on the swingarm are just "guides".. never use them as perfect.. the only way to assure CORRECT ALIGNMENT is a visual check of the chain to make sure its in a straight line!!!! - ...ANY bend, crook, or mis-alignment will cause premature wear and tear, and make it harder for your engine to make it turn. - Now - Rotate the wheel and find the tightest point of the chain... there is one, and its normal... LEAVE the tight point located between the two sprockets on the top of the swingarm. This is where you will "feel" for the correct tension.
The biggest thing most people miss when adjusting the tension is having the AXEL/NUT and the SWINGARM PIVOT SHAFT and the COUNTERSHAFT C/L (front sprocket shaft) IN A STRAIGHT LINE - ALL THREE ARE ON THE SAME PLANE!!!!!
. NOW, You may have to get a buddy to help pull the swing arm up.. (I use a tie down strap through the rear wheel and over the seat pulled tight enough to make AND KEEP the STRAIGHT LINE!!)
..Once you have established the straight line - --- - --- - and MADE SURE the chain is RUNNING STRAIGHT on both sprockets.. NOW _ its time to adjust the tension. There WILL be a tightest and loosest point of the chain..(normal).. you MUST adjust the tension using the TIGHTEST point of the chain....set the tension so you can move the chain up and down (total movement) about 1 3/8 inch to a max of 2 inches!! Once you have established the chain is straight and the tension is correct, its time to TIGHTEN EVERYTHING in order... start with snugging the axle nut.. then snug the adjuster nuts more..-- DOUBLE CHECK you chain alignment.. now - tighten the axle - TIGHT!!... tighten the adjuster nuts..lock down the lock nuts.. tighten the caliper.. TRIPLE CHECK the alignment... double check the tension...double check all the nuts... install the chain guard... REMOVE whatever you use the keep the straight line straight..

TRIPLE CHECK ALL NUTS!!! NOW ROTATE THE REAR WHEEL AND CHECK FOR BINDING AND MAKE SURE THE CHAIN IS WORKING CORRECTLY AND NOT TOO LOOSE..
KNOW you have done a job correctly!! (I am a factory trained mechanic, race engine builder, port work guy, race tuner.)..
GREAT JOB!!

StarTrac NXT Chain Tensioning & Alignment Video


About This Video


Adjusting Chain Tension and Alignment on a StarTrac NXT


  • In this video, we show how to tension and align the chain and flywheel on a StarTrac NXT bike


  • First you see an example of a chain that is way too loose


  • To correct this loosen the flywheel bolt on both sides of the flywheel


  • Loosen the tension nut on the sprocket side of the bike and tighten the tension bolt until you get the proper deflection on the chain



    • A properly tensioned chain will have roughly 3/16" of deflection




  • Tighten the tension nut and the flywheel nut on both sides as shown in the video


Check the Alignment of the Chain and Sprockets after Making a Chain Tension Adjustment


  • Misaligned chains will look like they are walking from side to side where they enter and leave the sprockets



    • This can cause noise, premature wear, as well as making the chain look to be jumping from side to side during use




  • To correct this, loosen the flywheel nut on both sides of the flywheel, then loosen the tension nut and adjust the tension bolt to move the flywheel in the proper direction needed to align the chain with the flywheel sprocket, as seen in the video



    • Note: If you have already achieved proper tension of the chain, adjusting the tension nut on the opposite side from the sprocket will help to keep the same tension on the chain




  • Don't forget to check the chain tension after making an alignment adjustment

Tensioner pulley


the nut is a normal right hand thread . loosen of the shaft nut and then release the tension on the belt by moving the small long bolt at the back of the bracket. Once the tension is off the belt the pulley will slip of the shaft after you fully remove the nut. Take care of the position of the washers and spacers as their position on reassembly is critical to correct alignment of the belt and pulley.

Chain tensioner screw keeps breaking on husqvarna 455 rancher


The tensioner should only move the bar when the retaining nut/nuts are loosened, once the nut/nuts are tightened there should be no pressure on the tensioner, so the nut/nuts are not tight enough.

How too take the belt tensioner off from the block


The tensioner on that vehicle has a stud made into the assembly. Underneath the vehicle, above the power steering pump, below the exhaust manifold, there is a 15mm nut. you will need a swivel socket and just the right combination of extentions to remove this nut. Once removed the tensioner will pull right off. Make sure to remove the serpentine belt before doing this, and you will probably need an extra hand holding the new tensioner in place while starting and tightening the nut.

How to replace the belt tensioner


If you are dealing with the 3.3 motor you have to reach up from under neath the motor and take off the nut between the engine, manifold, and alternator. The nut on the tensioner shaft is buried but easily accessed from under neath. You will need a ratchet a pivot and one or two extensions to loosen and tighten the nut. Be careful to clean/scrape all the white corrosion off of the engine block mounting surface before installing the new tensioner. If the surface is not clean the tensioner mounting nut will loosen and disintegrate your new tensioner and probably cut your new belt. Also, when putting on the tensioner belt lightly hand tighten the nut, then check that the tensioner bump/pin is holding the tensioner in the right position. When you are sure the tensioner is in position at the correct angle, then tighten the tensioner mounting bolt and put your new belt on. The trick is accessing the nut under the manifold then the rest is easy.

How do I change a front sprocket?


Thank you for contacting FixYa with your inquiry.
Go to this link and drill down to below indicated: http://cyclehuttktm.com/FicheFinderNew/FicheFinder.aspx 2001 > 400 SX RACING > ENGINE > TRANSMISSION II
You can loosen the chain tension from the adjusters at the end of the swing arm. Then remove the mud guard (If exists) covering the front sprocket. Remove the M10 X 18mm bolt holding the sprocket. Slide the sprocket and chain off the spline and change out. If unable to slide off the spline you can always open the master link on the chain and do same step.

Use reverse process to re-install new sprocket. Readjust chain tension and make sure to re-tighten axel nuts. Good idea to use Locktite on the 10 x 18 bolt and spring washer holding the front sprocket. Replace mud guard or leave off as to your preference.
Kind regards,
TF

    I want to reduce my amount of errors. I need to remove and replace the belt tensioner. Do I need to remove the alternator first or can I avoid it?


    If you are talking about a caravan or voyager, it is only hard because the access is poor to the nut.The automatic tensioner is held on by a nut. You have to jack up the car crawl underneath and reach up between the alternator mount and the rear exhaust manifold . The access to the nut is finger tip small. You will need a 14mm 6 point socket , a short extension, a long extension, a short breaker bar,a socket wrench, and a pivot joint for the extensions. Getting the nut onto the new tensioner is the hard part. Finger tight the nut and double check that the tensioner is positioned correctly in the mounting slot. Then tighten down the nut and put the belt back on.
    You should be able to move your belt tensioner by putting a wrench in the pulley bolt and levering the pulley toward the front bumper. You may have to place a piece of pipe over the wrench to get more leverage. If the tensioner will not move easily (like it is stuck in place). Replace the tensioner with one that is not frozen. I purchased a good used tensioner at a salvage yard for $10. All my belt squealing went away. Route the belt around the pulleys leaving the belt between the tension pulley and the engine. A shoe string or piece of wire around the belt will allow you to pull the belt up on to the tensioner pulley while you pull on the wrench holding the tensioner down with your other hand.
    If you take the old belt with you to the auto store , you can compare the belts to make sure you get the right belt. Also if you do not have a routing diagram for your vehicle , draw one before you remove the old belt. It is not hard to figure out the routing by looking at the pulleys, it is just easier with a diagram.
    Hope this helps. If you do not have a self adjusting tensioner on your mini van, please relist the question letting us know what year, model, and engine.
