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

dear susan shock adjustment for the rear shock are done with c wrench. you will notice at the top of the shocks there is a ring with 3 adjustment cams. the wrench is placed in the two holes you see on the shock opposite each other this is where the wrench fits you simply turn either direction for softer or harder ride. this adjustment puts more or less tension on the spring. i own a 96 vulcan as well hope this will help you jim

if your chain is makeing nois it would be a good idear to replace the chain a manual cam chain tenshioner will take the slack up but what about the valve timeing a worn chain will throw it out due to the chain stretching plus the manual tenshioner will make the guides wear faster if ya auto matic tenshioner has reached its limit that means replace chain no ifs or buts

You have a self adjusting cam chain tensioner. It is sold as an assembly. Take out the complete unit and replace it with a new one. The springs are not bad , the device that keeps the pressure on the tensioner is slipping causing a ticking sound.
