Adjust timing chain

Well first u need to remove the top cover and get to the cam. Remove the two bolts holding the cam sprocket and turn the engine till its at the tdc mark on the alternator rotor.on the sprocket there should be two notches. These have to line up with the top surface of the head. Ie one of the bolts is up one down. Put the head cover back on and ur timing is set. Then if it is anything like my xl250s on the back rhs of the head there should be two bolts. The one at the top is a 10 mm bolt the one at the bottom is a 10mm nut. These adjust the cam chain tension. Start the bike. Warm it up and while idleing loosen both off NO MORE than TWO turns. Tighten them back up and there is your chain tension done. If it slips u prob need a new cam chain.

Cam chain noise on a CBR1100 from 1998 Can this be ajust ? if so where is the bracket on the engine

Cam chain normally must be replaced, but sometimes cam chain tensioner may have some space to put more tension to tighten the cam chain. If you know how to access it then go for it. Good advise?
