Pop the cover off, turn the rotor until the C mark is aligned, Then loosen up the 12 mm nut that is on the 10 mm headed screw. Then loosen up the 10 mm headed screw. When the screw is loosened up it will take up slack and put spring pressure on the rod that puts pressure on the cam chain. Now that its taken up the slack tighten down the 10 mm headed stud and then the 12 mm locknut. That should take out all play in the cam chain tensioner. The cam chain tensioner is located under the carb boots from the engine to the carbs.
Hope this helps!

Cam chain adjustment procedure ?


cold ! tensioner should be able to retract back by turning a screw of some sort and you hold it in this position as you fit it and bolt on then release and it will reset and only turn engine in direction of rotation as if engine was to run and see if all parts turn ok and comes back to tdc after several rotations and all marks line up !

Yes, it is the cam chain tensioner. With the engine off, just loosen the tensioner lock bolt then strongly tap a few times on the tensioner casing with a screwdriver handle. This will free up the spring loaded tensioner. Now just re=tighten the tensioner lock bolt and you're done. Please rate my answer. Thanks. tombones49_157.gif

Timimg chain tension


replace.
and when you replace, also replace gears, as a new chain will eat up the old gears, and vise-versa.
