Question about 2001 Honda XR 250 R
It makes a hellacious racket when it runs and when i idle up it gets worse.
Your bike has an automatic cam chain tensioner. There is no "adjustment". A spring supplies the tension and I will bet the spring is broken. It is possible the fiber band that is the tensioner has broken but that seldom happens.
Go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site. In the event no price is shown on a particular part and/or the notation "Not Available" is in the description, the part is not in stock. www.babbittsonline.com/pages/parts/viewbybrandand/parts.aspx
