What would make chain come off 82 honda nighthawk 650 while going about 40 and bike not say anything now


Badly worn chain and/or sprockets.

Chain tension incorrect - too loose.

Chain alignment wrong. Careless chain adjustment can result in the chain/rear sprocket (rear wheel) alignment to be out. The rear wheel and the chain centre lines should be exactly parallel.

Chain alignment


the pedal sprocket is a fixed position and the adjustment is done at rear wheel the chain will go out of alignment if rear tire is not tightened correctly which would cause wheel to tilt --bearing in wheel or pedal damaged --

How do you align the wheels on a ktm 660 smc


Place the bikes rear on a paddock stand or have someone hold it upright for you.
Place two lengths of straight edged angle iron or wood, at least a foot longer that the wheel base of the bike on the ground, one either side of the rear tyre. The front wheel must be central. After adjusting the chain tension push the straight edges up against the rear tyre and pull/push the otherside of the axle until the front wheel is in line with the central place between the straight edges.

2006 Custom Sportster 1200, 19inch Harley Mag on the front. the Front End Wobbles at 90mph or above. Do I need a racing front end? This Harley is not slow... I am considering putting a CAM in it. It needs...


First, remove the front wheel and take it to a shop and have it computer balanced. On a mag wheel, the lead weights simply stick on and are notorious for coming off after a while. Make sure the wheel is balanced correctly and the "run out" of the wheel and tire is acceptable.

When you put the wheel back on the bike, check the wheel bearing end play. The book says that it should be between 0.004 - 0.018". I'd try to keep it below 0.010" in your case. Check the adjustment and "fall away" of the front end, tension on the steering head bearings. Since I don't have a manual for your year model Sportster, I must refer you to a dealer or authorized shop for this information.

Also. check the alignment of the rear wheel in the swing arm. The book shows the use of a straight edge place along side one edge of the front wheel to check the alignment of the rear wheel with the front wheel. Use a piece of straight angle aluminum.

Also, check your rear shock settings. A stiffer setting my help. If all else fails, there are places you can take your bike and they will check it on a frame jig to optimize the entire bike for proper alignment.

Good Luck

What is the wheel alignment on the flsts?


The wheel alignment is fixed and cannot be changed between the front wheel and the rear wheel. Also, different models of bikes may or may not have an offset between the front and rear wheels.

The only alignment that you have any control over is the alignment of the rear wheel inside the swingarm. It must run parallel to the swingarm. The way you get this is by adjusting the rear wheel to where the length of the adjuster bolts are the same on both sides of the swingarm when the belt is at the proper tension.

Rear wheel not centre of frame on harley davidson 09 low rider (dyna) have checked with manual and had to adjust top engine mount, fixed slightly still out by over 10 mm after loosening front and rear...


The easiest way to check rear wheel alignment on a Dyna is by the two little "witness marks" on the rear swing arm. These two marks are just forward of the axle. One on each side of the swingarm. Measure from the mark back to the center of the axle on each side. The distance should be the same with the proper final drive belt tension.

As for the rear wheel being "centered" with the frame, the only way to check that is to take the fuel tank and rear fender off, stretch a string from the center of the steering head along the frame on back across the rear wheel. Simply looking at the way the wheel is positioned in the swingarm may be deceptive. The swingarm may not be symetrical due to the necessity to clear the final drive pulley and such. The engine alignment shouldn't have anything to do with the rear wheel alignment.

For something as serious as wheel alignment within the frame, I'd take the bike to a dealer somewhere and have them check it out. On some bikes, there is supposed to be an offset betweent he front wheel and the rear wheel. Use a piece of straight piece of square aluminum tubing to check wheel alignment.
