SOURCE: Chain

Locate the tensioner locknut on the right-hand cilinder (bottom): -keep the engine idling for about two or three minutes -loosen the locknut about two turnes while idling -the chain tensioner will slide into the proper position -tighten the locknut to secure the tensioner position and stop the engine -repeat every 3000km or 2000mls

SOURCE: chain tension

Most any motorcycle comes with an adjustable chain device on the rear swing arm. as you adjust the small nut inwards towards the front of the bike, it tightens the chain. Likewise for loosening. the adjuster should have increment markings on both sides of the swingarm to even the wheel out. Now I can't say for sure that this is the case with your bike, so I just joined a website that has a forum on these bikes. If you'd like to join as well here is the address http://www.ducati.ms/ I'll get the info from them and relay it back to you. Hope this helps

Im still breaking in my bike,,why is there a ticking sound in the engine while running?


All the parts in your engine are wearing in. Part of the 600 mile check up involves adjusting the valves and the cam chain tensioner (if it is not self adjusting). Chances are the valves are wearing in, the gap is too wide, and just need to be adjusted back to the correct clearance. Worst case scenario the cam chain tensioner has failed. http://www.kawasakiforums.com/forum/general-tech-9/klx-250s-2006-loud-clicking-sound-not-valve-33671/

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.
