    I have tried to check the tension of the tinming chains and they seem to be ok but there is still noise as if the chains are loose. The noise reduceses when I increase the speed. When changing down it is like a metal hitting the engine block.

    Please help!!!

It depends, 4cyl. is a chain, the 6cyl. is a belt and it is an interference engine. I have not done this one yet, but Hondas are never that easy.

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

Timing chain slapping when cold . can anyone tell me how to adjust timing chain on a 88 honda shadow vt 1100

yes, there should be an timing chain adjuster sticking out the side.
they are self adjusting, so if you think it needs further adjustment, it probably means that your timing chain is stretched and its time for a new chain.

Replaced camchain on crf80 and now all it does is idle. must have timing out. What is the procedure to get valve timing right?

With the valve timing and chain drive for it, I would say you have it right as one link either way and it won't fire up at all.
Look for a carb problem.
