On my Honda 200x 1984 timing jumps one tooth after setting kicked first time ride jumped out.65.50 wisco big bore kit.12 tooth drive socket. Set tenchner til chain sound stops?,

2 questions come to mind has the new sprocket got the same pitch ( distance between teeth ) as the crank shaft sprocket as this will make the chain jump out after a few degrees of movement. A quick check is to wrap the chain around the sprocket and see if there are links that do not sit fully around the teeth. There are different pitches for teeth and chains ( BA-- AM and metric)

Need to know where the hoses from the carborator go on newly aquired honda 200x atv 1985 also the carborator was torn apart when i got it i think its back together right though

The hoses from the carb are a bowl vent hose (top one) and the one out the bottom is a bowl drain. They don't connect to anything, typically they run down in the frame behind the motor. Good luck!

How do i tighten the timing chain on a 1985 suzuki 550L

the timing chain has an automatic tensioner at the rear of the engine cylinders, if the chain is loose the tensioner is either defective or the chain is stretched to the point the tensioner can no longer take up the normal slack created by wear.

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.

How do I adjust the timming chain tension on a honda 125 XL 1987 model

on the back of the cylinder head you've got two 10mm nuts/bolt heads, with the engine running SLIGHTLY loosen these bolts and then tighten them back up and the excess chain noise should be gone.

Hope this helps
