Hi blazinj
To adjust your cam chain.if you remove the small bolt in the top of the tensioner lock nut there is a 3mm thread in the adjuster rod.get your self a long 3mm screw or possibly a spoke (i use a tail lamp screw)thread it into the adjuster. Start the motor and with it idling undo the lock bolt(14mm head) and pull up on the screw just enough to get rid of the rattle. Dont overdo it. Then tighten down the locker. remove the screw, and refit the cover. Done. Dont forget to rate me for the advice. Cheers
regards robotek

Can you adjust the timing chain of a 1986 honda shadow vt500 without taking the motor off the frame?


According to the official Honda Service Manual there is no adjustment. If the cam chain is worn/stretched, it needs to be replaced.
Here is a direct quote from the manual: "Measure the amount of the cam chain tensioner projects as shown (there is an illustration). Replace the cam chain with a new one if the projection exceeds 9.0mm (0.35 in)."
You need two chains and the part is obsolete. Here is some info from partzilla.com

The 83 & 84 Ascot share the same engine as the vt500c. It may be easier to find the parts in the UK than in the USA.

If it is just a little noise try to live with it.

I hope this helps. Rod

How can i reduce timing chain noice in hero honda splender


some bikes have an adjustment nut - connected to a plate that applies tension to the cam chain - if not - it may need to be replaced ( I believe some are self adjusting - but not sure ) - best to buy a shop manual, ( OEM or Clymer Manual ) or download one on line - its cheap insurance - it will tell you how much tension to apply -

Xr 350 timing chain slop makes noise can i adjust it


Both the 1985 honda xr250r and xr350 look loke they have self adjusting cam chain tensioners. You may have a broken tensioner or tensioner guide. With the age of the bike you may need a new cam chain. There is nothing to adjust so you need to just figure out if the chain is stretched , if a guide is broken, or if the tensioning mechanism is malfunctioning.
