I need to take out some links in the chain on a liftmaster garage door opener. How do I do this? It is about 20 months old.


Two ways!

On the cable section of the chain use a cable shorten-er.

On the chain remove excess chain and install a master link/

26357047-x15jo43ndspuozxlydbahatb-3-2.jpg Master link/ You would need to go to a bicycle shop to have the chain shortened.

26357047-x15jo43ndspuozxlydbahatb-3-5.jpg Check to make sure you can not extend the rail before cutting chain. The cable shorten-ers will likely be available at an auto parts store. They are used to adjust the parking brake!

HJope this helps?

How to keep my gears from slipping


Firstly ensure the derailleur is in good condition and not bent so the chain is running perfectly in line with the sprockets. Ensure the stop screws limiting the extent of the travel of the derailleur are set correctly to prevent travel beyond the first and last sprocket.

A badly worn chain could need shortening or replacing in order to provide the correct chain tension or a loose chain could be a matter of a derailleur that hasn't seen the oil can for a while and is not tensioning the chain correctly.
If the bike has been involved in an accident the rear forks could perhaps need some adjustment so a straight edge laid alongside the main chain-wheel coincides approximately with the middle of the rear sprocket cluster.

At this stage it is also wise to ensure the gear cable is in A1 condition, smooth operating and properly oiled with no internal frayed strands causing problems.

If your gear selectors are of the modern style with detents the gear cable needs adjusting so the centre of each detent at the gear selector positions the derailleur precisely below the selected sprocket. Once this is done if everything else mentioned above is ok the gears should now operate smoothly and positively.

If adjustment doesn't work then the problem is likely to be with the basic requirements above.
Good luck!

Skipping when applying pressure to pedals


needs a gear adjustment hopefully. it might have a stretched chain along with worn cassette teeth. if you have ridden alot of miles in the smaller gears in the rear you might have worn them out. you would have to replace chain and rear sprockets/cassette

Bought a 03honda cbr 600rr, front sproket had been changed out and rear tire moved back. chain is loose 2"+ in slack but i can not move tire back any further in swing arms. can I move rear tire up and...


hi, prob good idea with this will be to slacken off the wheel push the wheel forward and fit a chain the correct length for the set up you have, count the links in the chain you have on the bike and get one 2 links shorter, mark a link on the chain with paint or sim turn the wheel and count the link plates, ie 1 plate is 2 links, so start on the 1 next to the marked 1 turning the wheel counting the plates 2 4 6 8 10 etc and end on the marked 1 this will give you the number of links already on the bike

How tighten a chain


well first get the bike up on a stand or set it on a milk crate. Loosen up main axle nuts you may need another wrench on the other side to back it up. loosen any small chain adjustment nuts. pull the chain as far back as it can go all the time looking a the chain sag..you want to keep about 5/8 to 1 inch play...lock just the axle nuts down snug...now spin the tire to see that all parts of the chain maintain this amount of sag. if its too tight in one area, you have a "stretched chain", and this will now be the focal point for tightening up the chain...this tighter part must have "some" slack in it...id say give it about 1/2 inch...now tighten up the chain adjustment nuts finger tight and look at your rear sprocket and make sure it lines up perfectly straight on with the counter shaft sprocket up front. Once this is aligned, tighten the smaller nuts snug, then proceed to torque down lightly maybe 10- 20 ftlbs. now spin the tire to check your slack in the chain did it move on you? Then you have to tighten or loosen the chain adjustment nuts a little more in or out till you get it right so it can move into the correct position. Once you got it right torque down on the main axle nuts 50-60ft lbs. Now tighten evenly each chain nut with the same ammount of turns to each....tighten the last nut down hard onto the first so they wont vibrate off. Now you should lube the chain..and your ready to go. after a while of hard riding recheck everything just to make sure shes secure! Can i get a very helpful on this. thanks!

Putting the chain on 10 speed after changing flat tire


Wind the chain through the rear sprockets, grab a hold of the rear sprocket and rotate the smaller sprocket towards the pedal, that should give you enough slack to put the chain on the front sprockets

Changin chain on 2002 honda shadow ace


Unless you are changing sprocket sizes you can not shorten the chain because removing even one link would not allow the ends to connect. Are you adjusting the chain as needed? Why do you want to shorten it?

Even if the factory chain has no master link (some are continuous these days) you can still grind off two pins carefully and push out a link to remove the chain, or simply cut it. That is what you must do when replacing the chain.
