Question about 1983 Honda XL 125 R
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
