The large axle bolt holds the wheel in place. The adjusters are only used for setting the position of the wheel , mainly for chain and sprocket alignment. First remove the cotter pin and loosen the large nut on the axle bolt. Now you can loosen the adjuster bolts and slide the wheel forward. If you have the correct length chain for the sprockets every thing should fit perfectly. When you unhook the old master link do not remove the chain. Hook the new chain to the old chain using the old master link ( do not lock it on) just use it to pull the chain around the front sprocket. This will save you having to take off the front sprocket cover. I usually find it helpful to count the links on the old chain and lay the chains side by side to make sure the new chain does not get cut too short. If the chain is too short , you may have to get another master link and add some chain back in to get the correct length. Hope this helps.

I'm gonna change my rear sprocket and front sprocket and chain how can I make sure it's gonna be done proper


Hi Jake if you have the right tools it will be no trouble. Before you remove the rear wheel remove the front sprocket cover and loosen the nut or nuts holding the front sprocket. This will be safer than doing it with the r/wheel off. Next remove the wheel and keep note as to where the spacers go (don't mix them up!) remove the sprocket nuts and the sprocket. Again note which way the sprocket goes some have a thinner center so make sure the new one fits the same way. Refit the wheel leave it loose and loosen the adjusters allowing the wheel all the way forward. Then open the chain and join the new chain to the end of the old one with the link supplied then pull the old chain until the new one is fitted. Next join the new chain together. ( you may need to remove a link or two) it will depend on the length of the new chain. After this fit the new f/sprocket and tighten the nut then adjust the chain leaving 1.5inches of free play up and down. Make sure the adjusters sre even on the marks each side. And finaly After a day or two of use adjust again to around 1 inch up and down. Have fun. Regards Jim...

Chain tension loosens during use


That is normal after using it. You have to loosen the lug nuts at the bar cover and with the screwdriver end of the tool tighten the screw near the back end of the bar. It is the chain adjustment screw. When tightening it, pull up on the chain with your other gloved hand. Don't over tighten it and tighten the nuts down so the chain will be snug but not too tight.
When sharpening your chain , do not file down the drag links too much. (They do cut better with the drag links filed down just a bit.) But that will also make your chain loosen up more quickly.

I can't get a replacement chain back on the bar on


The 450E is a tooless system, make sure the brake is off by pulling the handgurd fully back to the top handle, flip up the lever on the big grey fixing nut, undo counter clockwise, wind the grey knurled adjuster wheel facing out of the cover fully back, remove the chainbrake side cover, push the guide bar fully back toward the sprocket, you now have enough rome to replace the chain onto the guide bar rails, now re fit the side cover, make sure the adjuster pawl in the cove aligns with the adjuster hole in the bar, re fit the big fixing nut finger tight, wind the adjuster wheel down to re tention the chain, when the chain is snug all the way around the bar tighten the nut fully.

How do i adjust the chain on my 2004 kawasaki 250f


Simple task, get the bike up on a stand so the back wheel is off the ground. Loosen the rear wheel nut (big 21/22mm nut attached to the spindle that goes through the wheel hub) not too much, just enough that the wheel will move when you adjust the adjusters. Now, on either side of the swing arm you will see a bolt, with a lock nut, running from inside the swing arm, onto the axel block, which the spindle goes through. Adjust these either out or in, depending on whether you need to loosen or tighten the chain. If loosening the chain, you might want to give the rear tyre a kick forwards to move it in (after you have loosened the adjusters inwards). So thats how you do it, simple. The chain should have no more than half an inch movement up and down after adjustment. Lock the adjusters in place using the lock nut, then tighten the big wheel nut up, job done.

Chain falls of constantly


There is an adjustment screw on the body of the saw right beside the bar. It tightens the chain. Loosen the lug nuts that hold the chain bar on, but do not take then completely off, then tighten the chain with the chain adjustment screw, and retighten the lugnuts. Make sure you do not overtighten the lugnuts, because you do not want to break off one of the lugs. Also be careful that the back side of the chain is running in the track in the bar for which it was designed, without any obstructions that can cause it to kick off. Be careful, and remember that when you cut your own firewood, it warns you up twice!

Clutch cable wont work. came loose on inside of cover


Are you sure it just came loose? More than likely, it broke. To find out, drain the primary oil and loosen the locknut at the cable adjuster on the outer primary cover. Turn the adjuster inwards as far as it will go. Remove the four screws on the derby cover. and lift it away from the primary cover. Remove the spring and the locknut.

Now, remove any footpegs or anything else that may be in the way of the removal of the outer primary. Loosen the locknut on turn the primary chain tensioner out on the bottom of the primary cover. Remove all the bolts from the primary.

Now, turn the clutch adjuster screw back at the derby cover in a clockwise direction and remove the outer primary cover. With the primary cover off, you can replace the cable if necessary or simply hook it back up.

Reassemble in reverse order. To adjust the primary chain, turn the adjuster bolt upwards until you have 1/2" to 5/8" up and down slack in the top run of the primary chain. To adjust the clutch, turn the screw counterclockwise until it stops. Then, go back clockwise 1/4 turn and install the locknut, spring and the derby cover. Then adjust the cable adjuster out until you have 1/8" freeplay in the cable.

Good Luck

I want to replace my old chain with a new one how do i do that


To replace the main drive chain,you need to remove the chain cover on the engine case which should have a couple of bolts or screws securing it. Loosen the back wheel by untightening the rear axle bolts and then loosen the rear adjusters either side. Make a note of their positions they need to be be the same position either side, although the new chain may need a different setting but as long as they are both the same tightness each side is what matters.Loosen the wheel and move it forward when the axle is loose and the pin holding the axle nut is removed.Unscrew the two 6mm bolts holding the front sprocket a the engine side of the chain.Turn the part on the front sprocket where the two bolts have just been removed so that it lines with the gearbox splines and pull it forward along with the front sprocket at the same time as you push the loosened rear wheel the chain should pull away from the teeth on both sprockets.
To put on the new chain just reverse the proceedure.the ajusters need to be tight but not too tight just enough play to move it up and down slightly remember both adjustes need to be the same position each side and check that the wheel is in line with the bike and straight as uneven adjustments will cause the wheel to be turned slightly off the required vertical position.

There should be one or two limiting screws for the front derailleur that you can use to adjust how far out/in the derailleur moves to shift the chain over. You can ask a friend to lift the back end of the bike off the ground while you do the adjusting of these screws and then try shifting the gear while moving the peddles with your other hand.

How to tighten the chain


Loosen the rear axle nut mounting the wheel to the swing arm, then loosen the lock bolt on the top of the chrome adjuster ( left and right adjusters ), then loosen the lock nut on the long adjuster screw. Run the nut about 1/2" down the length of the adjuster screw. Now turn the adjuster screws equally in a clockwise direction to remove the excess slack from the chain. There should be index lines on the swing arm that the single index line on the chrome adjuster is referenced to. Example; If the chrome index line meets up with perhaps the fourth index mark on the swing arm on the left side, the right side should be at the same position. This keeps the wheel in alignment. When the adjustment is finished tighten the axle nut then tighten the adjuster lock nuts and then tighten the lock bolt on top of the chrome adjusters.

Leave some slack in the chain. Mid-chain you should be able to move the chain up and down about one and one half inches. If the chain can be lifted at the rear sprocket it is too loose. Lubricate the chain and the control cables on the bike. What condition are the front and rear sprockets in? The teeth should be bluntly rounded at the tip. If the teeth are sharp at the tip, or getting that way, then the sprockets are way past time to be replaced. Note that a worn sprocket can quickly ruin a new chain.

Please top rate this solution. Thanks!
