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

Adjust timing chain


Well first u need to remove the top cover and get to the cam. Remove the two bolts holding the cam sprocket and turn the engine till its at the tdc mark on the alternator rotor.on the sprocket there should be two notches. These have to line up with the top surface of the head. Ie one of the bolts is up one down. Put the head cover back on and ur timing is set. Then if it is anything like my xl250s on the back rhs of the head there should be two bolts. The one at the top is a 10 mm bolt the one at the bottom is a 10mm nut. These adjust the cam chain tension. Start the bike. Warm it up and while idleing loosen both off NO MORE than TWO turns. Tighten them back up and there is your chain tension done. If it slips u prob need a new cam chain.

How do you adjust the tension on the timing chain for a honda Xl185S?


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

Timming chain adjustment


Most likely you have anautomatic cam chain tensioner, which cannot be tensioned, and the only remedy is to replace the cam chain (if it's stretched). If, however, you have a manualy adjusted cam chain tensioner (highly unlikely), you have to look up the tensioning value in your workshop manual.
