SOURCE: timing chain tensioner adjustment

all v twin engines are noisy, if you could totally silence the exhaust noise, you would be horrified how awful the motor sounds, it could probably do with the cam chain tensioner ADJUSTING. i wouldn't think it would need replacing. unfortunately the manual only recomends this being done by a qualified tech, i have a xvs 650 with same trouble. i would adjust myself if i could find out the correct tollerences.

You bike is running rich on the main jet. Go down on the main jet size. Alternate to that, move the jet needle clip up one notch.

Go to the site below and you can download a free PDF service manual and parts manual for your bike. The service manual is 45th from the bottom of the Yamaha listings and the parts manual is 19th from the top. Now you can tune the carb and adjust the timing chain slack and a whole lot more. It saves my keystroke finger a lot of work also.

Please rate this solution. Thanks glouellette!

with the float bowl off and holding the carb level, adjust the float where it is level and the jet is up enough to seal. float should be set then.

The forks hold 286ml or 9.67 US OZ of oil, best would be to use hydraulic oil.
Good Luck.

SOURCE: can u adjust the timming chain on a yamaha xj 600

The XJ600 has a self adjusting timing chain tensioner, although it's robust enough, like the previous post say's they can stick. To remove the adjuster look at the back of the engine on the cylinder head, the tensioner is there, two bolts hold it on one above and one below. to remove the tensioner there is a spring tensioner in the centre of the unit, undo this with care it hold the pressure spring in place on the plunger. Now remove the retaining bolts very carfully, equal turns on each bolts (do not take one out fully, leaving the other in place fully tight).
Once off the engine DO NOT ROTATE the engine. The tensioner should move freely, although there is a rachet system that locks it out, if it moves out freely then it's fine. To re-fit the tensioner release the tensioner make sure it's adjusted fully inwards and use a fresh gasket. The tensioner only firs one way, if it won't fit don't force it and it can be broken easily. Tighten both retaining bolts evenly and per the removal. Re-fit the tensioning spring and retaining bolt (do not over tighten) the plunger is self adjusting from here.

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 !

How do i adjust timing chain on a yamaha 650 seca?


On the back of the cylinders is the cam chain tensioner. Find the timing marks for the motor and set the motor to top dead center (TDC) on the compression stroke for the #1 cylinder. Piston up, both valves loose (not pressing on valves). Now loosen the bolt on top off the tensioner and tighten it back up. You have just adjusted your cam chain tensioner.
