I have a 2000 xr 80,we put new piston and rings in.Timing marks were lined up but is there a way to fine tune timing?

The valve timing is a static setting. As a rule it will either work or not. The only adjustment is usually the ignition timing.

Xr 350 timing chain slop makes noise can i adjust it

Both the 1985 honda xr250r and xr350 look loke they have self adjusting cam chain tensioners. You may have a broken tensioner or tensioner guide. With the age of the bike you may need a new cam chain. There is nothing to adjust so you need to just figure out if the chain is stretched , if a guide is broken, or if the tensioning mechanism is malfunctioning.

My '85 xl 250 r seized up on me one day, looking for advice

your not going to know until it is pulled down and inspected.
You say it wouldnt start then siezed. if it wasnt running when it siezed it could be a cam chain , or a problem with the kick start mechanism.
pull the rocker cover off (it will come off with the engine in the frame) and have a look.
Pull the left engine cover off and see if you can turn the flywheel(spark plug out).
This should give a bit of an indication if there is major internal problems.
The 85 had a real problem with cracks in the head just near the spark plug thread, but this wouldnt be the cause of a siezure.

How do I adjust the timing on my 250

the ignition timing is electronic, you dont adjust it.
if you mean valve timing.. if it is out of time then you probably need a cam chain and tensioner,

How do you adjust the timing chain?

you can't adj. it the cam chain adj. is spring loaded. if your chain is lose there would be three things i would replace, the cam chain. the followers and the adj.
Given the age it wouldn't hurt please it will give a chance to look over the vavle trian.

How do i remove the cam chain off the sprocket? undo the 2 screws out the sprocket and slide the sprocket across and down or?

Remove the spark plug then put the piston at Top Dead Center compression. Look at the position of the timing marks on one side of the cam, parallel with the gasket surface. Remove the cam as you described.

Any chance the valve spring has collapsed? Cam shaft thrust washers missing? Cam shaft bearing gone bad?
