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You need two chains and the part is obsolete.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

Timing chain replacement nterval

timing changes change is indicated by a rattly noise from the from of the engine. Most have a hydraulic adjuster that keeps the chain tight and if you do regular oil changes with quality oil then the requirement to change the chain would pass 200.000klm or about 180.000miles depending on your driving habits and what rpms you push the engine to

Have a 2001 GR Vitara with rattly engine noise. Seems to go OK. Mileage 89000km..Thought it may be Timing chain..any ideas

well without hearing it its difficult to say but a new timing chain adjuster will help ,if it is the timing chain then just a new adjuster will cure it but it could be the cam followers its difficult to point you in the right direction without hearing it myself then i could tell you exactly ,ask a local mechanic for his opinion first before you start playing with it though

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.

ZX6 Noisy Cam Chain

if your chain is makeing nois it would be a good idear to replace the chain a manual cam chain tenshioner will take the slack up but what about the valve timeing a worn chain will throw it out due to the chain stretching plus the manual tenshioner will make the guides wear faster if ya auto matic tenshioner has reached its limit that means replace chain no ifs or buts
