Can you adjust the timing chain of a 1986 honda shadow vt500 without taking the motor off the frame?

According to the official Honda Service Manual there is no adjustment. If the cam chain is worn/stretched, it needs to be replaced.
Here is a direct quote from the manual: "Measure the amount of the cam chain tensioner projects as shown (there is an illustration). Replace the cam chain with a new one if the projection exceeds 9.0mm (0.35 in)."
You need two chains and the part is obsolete. Here is some info from

The 83 & 84 Ascot share the same engine as the vt500c. It may be easier to find the parts in the UK than in the USA.

If it is just a little noise try to live with it.

I hope this helps. Rod

Cam chain adjustment

cam chain tension will not cause your problem. A miss at revs is electrical (coil -points-ht leads-plugs etc) and possible air/ fuel ratio problem --leaning out at revs from jet size setting

Xvs 650 dragstar timing chain adjustment. how do you do it?

That engine uses automatic cam chain adjusters. There is no manual over-ride or adjustment. If the cam chain is loose, you need to replace the adjuster at the least and possibly the cam chain and guides.

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.

Poss loose timing/cam chain!

Cam chains are self adjusting. They have a tensioner that takes up slack as the guides wear and the chain stretches. You may be able to get away with new guides if your chain isn't too stretched. Look for pieces of plastic in the oil, which will signal work guides. It is possible you are hearing the valves rattle, and it would be time for a valve adjustment.
