You have a big nut on one end of the axle, and the 2 adj screws on either side at the end of the fork. Loosen the nut, tighten the adj, if your bike doesn't have marks on it, make some now before you move it, then move no more than 1/8 inch off the mark you made. Tighten up the axle, you are all set, the chain should have a little slop to it, 1/2 min, Hope this helps.

Chain adjustment


Just a guess, but beings you didn't give YEAR/MAKE/MODEL, that's all I can do.

IF it's the rear drive chain you're talking about (as opposed to the primary chain), get rear wheel off the ground.
With bike in neutral, rotate rear wheel until you find the tightest spot of the chain in the middle between the rear sprocket and the transmission sprocket.
Loosen axle nut, adjust rear axle adjusters evenly until slack is within spec.
Rotate rear wheel in normal direction of travel and see that chain is tracking true on sprocket. If not,adjust as needed with axle adjusters.
IF mechanical rear brake (instead of hydraulic rear brake), adjust brake.

Loose chain. The chain has the specified 78 drive links, but it's too loose even at the tightest adjustment (has quick-adjust bar with nose sprocket). The chain has plenty of wear left on its teeth. The...


If it is the correct drive link count, then unfortunatley it has stretched, it is not a good idea to remove links as the next thing to happen is it breakes.

Chain is slipping and jumping gears


okay lets ask why it broke did it get jammed?was it worn?is your front crankset or rear gearset loose with play in it?does the chain make a clicking while pedalling hard? first and last require a replacement chain because it broke for a reason.if your drive gears are loose then you will have to adjust/repair them also checking adjustment on the derailuers should be checked.
hope this helps

Wild thing chain saw chain came off


The drive links are burred.

Then install and properly tension the chain

Chain Adjustment
  1. Make sure the chain brake is off (gloves will protest your fingers).
  2. If necessary, loosen the bar nuts that are clamping the clutch cover in place (or whatever holds the clutch cover and bar on). They do not need these really loose - finger tight will do.
  3. Ease the tension adjustment until the chain is obviously loose.
  4. Using one hand, hold the nose of the bar up.
  5. While holding the nose up, adjust the tensioner so that the center of the chain just touches the underside of the bar, add a touch more.
  6. Continue holding the nose of the bar up & tighten up the bar nuts / bolts / quick-release system. HTH

Chain keeps coming off and when is on wont cut


If you are having difficulty fitting the drive links into the bar groove, the chain binds or rides up when rotated there may be burrs on the drive links. These often form if the chain comes off while at speed. use a file on the drive link flats to remove them.

Why does my chain come off all the time


could be one of several reasons ,you could be running the chain too loose ,the bar could be excessivly worn or the drive sprocket in behind the clutch ,that drives the chain could be worn out. all i can say for certain is that , it is one of ,or a combination of those things an ex perienced eye would pick it straight away on seeing it "youdoit"

The chain keeps coming off, even after using the wheel to tighten it.


Model and serial numbers would be helpful. You can respond even though the thread is closed below the advertisements.

Remove the clutch cover, bar, and chain. Inspect the drive sprocket is it deeply gouged or perhaps worn through? That can cause this problem. The most likely cause of this problem is incorrect chain installation or a badly burred chain.

The chain will have burrs on the drive links of the chain and may not fit the groove in your bar. If true use a flat file on the side of the drive links and remove all burrs.

Your saw is equipped with a "Chain Catcher". That is what causes the burrs. Without the catcher it would have been your leg. Were you wearing chaps? HTH

Can not keep chain on bar. Tried 2 different


The inside part of the chain are called drive links. I think when the chains came off the first time (loose chain?) some of these links were slightly deformed (burred). Take a flat file to the burrs on the sides of the drive links. Once repaired keep your chain properly tensioned.

If no burrs please repost. This has piqued my interest. I think a brand new chain will operate correctly.
