How do you replace the chain tensioner on a Razor E300

Theres an 8mm nut holding it onto the pin that goes thru the frame.
Take that nut off and remove the tensioner. Put some grease on the new pin where the tensioner goes. Put the end of the new spring into the hole in the frame next to the pin hole. Hold the tensioner in place and put the pin thru and the nut back on. You should be able to get the chain back on the sprocket without loosening the axle nuts. Hope this helps.

How to replace a chain with master link on a Schwinn Airdyne

Airdyne Chain Replacement with Master link

This video will demonstrate how to replace the chain with master link on a Schwinn Airdyne.
  • First remove the cotter pin and clevis pin from the user's right handlebar. Then lower the connecting arm and handlebar.
Caution: be sure to hold the handlebar as it will come loose after removal of the above parts.
  • Remove the connecting arm and pedal and crank arm by removing the wedge pin. To simplify this process loosen the nut and tap on it with a small hammer until the pin is loosened.
  • Remove the nut, wedge pin, crank arm and connecting arm.
  • Next remove the chain guard; there are three screws attaching it as shown in the video.
  • Remove the chain by locating the master link. Remove the lock pin and the cover, and then disconnect the chain.
  • Place the new chain on the sprockets as shown in the video.
  • Install the master link, cover and lock.
  • Re-install the chain guard and attaching screws.
  • Re-assemble the connecting arm to the handlebar and eccentric.
  • Be sure the brass bushing is installed in the front inner side of the connecting arm before installing the clevis pin and cotter pin.
  • Install the crank arm with pedal.
Be sure when completing this step that the crank arm is installed in the opposite position as the users left side crank arm.
  • Install the nut onto the wedge pin and tighten.
  • This completes the procedure.

How do I remove the chain

If you look around the chain you will notice one of the links is flat all the way around and not hour glass shaped. This is called the master link. There are cheap specific tools for separating these but I use a screw driver and a pliers. Insert the screwdriver in the gap of the link where the master is. Grab on as close as you get get to the master link on the chain with the pliers making sure to not be on the link you are trying to pop. Twist the screw driver until the little ****** pops off and keep an eye on it if it shoots off. I hate trying to find them. When you go to put it back on use a needle nose and squeeze it on again. You can get one side on and then press the second side on.

I need to install a bike chain for my 10 speed

very often you need to replace the rear cluster at the same time as the chain, as it wears to the shape of the old chain and when a new chain is fitted to an old cluster it can sometimes jump, which is not fun if you are standing and pedalling up a hill ( not quite as bad for the ladies)
anyhow remove the old chain by punching a pin out of a link, and lay it on the ground next to the new chain, punch a pin out of the new chain at the same lenght.
Thread the new chain around the cogs and derailleur and fit the joiner, there are some really neat joiners that will just slot together. or you can use the link from when you sized the new chain, just press the pin back through with multy grips, make sure the joiner link is not sticky at all, or it will jump when it goes around the cluster

How to remove swinging arm pin

prop the bike up on a stand or cement block so the rear tire is off the ground. then loosen the the large nut but do not remove it. just un-screw it about half way, then take a block fo wood and place it on the nut. then hit the block of wood with a hammer. continue hotting the block untill the nut is against the frame. now remove the big nut the rest of the way. now put the block of wood over the end of the bolt and drive it till its flush with the frame. at this point you should be able to get ahold of the bolt(pin) and wiggle the rear tire around and pull the bolt out the rest of the way. if not then use a long flat blade screw driver and drive it out with the hammer.

This is a easy problem... Have any question call 972-907-9771 x311
51e9bbd.jpg ATTENTION Hammer springs and hammer tips are fragile. Do not touch the hammer springs or tips. Handle hammer springs by the
thick mounting base only. Apply pressure only to the mounting base.
NOTE: Replace a hammer spring assembly only if there is visible damage or broken parts can be seen in the assembly.
5. Remove the mounting screws from the old hammer spring assembly. (See Figure 18, page 367.)
6. Handling the hammer spring assembly by the mounting base only, gently pry the old hammer spring assembly off its
mounting pins. (See Figure 18, page 367.)
7. Inspect the hammer bank and the old hammer spring assembly:
a. If there is ink on the hammer bank mounting surface, the hammer spring assembly mounting surface, or the hammer
spring neck or tines, reinstall the old hammer spring assembly and replace the shuttle frame assembly (page 405).
b. If the old hammer spring assembly and the hammer bank are free of ink, install the new hammer spring assembly
1. Using a clean dry cloth, wipe the hammer spring mounting surface on the hammer bank. Make sure the cloth does not
leave lint on the hammer bank.
ATTENTION Hammer springs and hammer tips are fragile. Do not touch the hammer springs or tips. Handle hammer springs by the
thick mounting base only. Apply pressure only to the mounting base.
NOTE: Replace a hammer spring assembly only if there is visible damage or you see broken parts in the assembly.
2. Handling it by the mounting base only, remove the new hammer spring assembly and mounting screws from the box.
3. Handling the hammer spring assembly by the mounting base only, carefully position it on the hammer bank mounting pins.
then gently press the mounting base down against the alignment pins. (See Figure 19, page 369.)
4. Continue pressing down on the mounting base of the the new hammer spring assembly as you install the mounting screws
from the replacement kit. Using a Torx T-10 bit adapter, torque each screw to 14 inch-pounds (1.58 N•m). Tighten the
center screw(s) first. (See Figure 19, page 369.)
NOTE: Use the 1-30 inch-pound Torque Screwdriver, IBM part number 16F1661.
5. Install the hammer bank cover assembly (page 354).
6. Install the shuttle frame assembly (page 405).
7. Install the ribbon and load paper.
ATTENTION Do not attempt to adjust or “tweak” hammer springs.
8. Run an operator print test and check print quality (page 223):
a. If print quality is acceptable, return the printer to normal operation (page 339).
b. If print quality is still degraded, replace the shuttle frame assembly (page 405).

1982 Suzuki GS650G timing chain install

it is possible to unlink the timing chain. I dont really recommend it, but I have done it before with no problems. if you can get ahold of a small chain breaker you can use that to press one of the pins out of the chain. you may be able to find one at a hardware store. then, use the same breaker to press the pin back into the chain. you MUST be sure that it fits tightly though, so the pin doesnt try to back out later down the road. this is what I did...for a loose fitting pin, I used a hammer with a punch to "mushroom" the ends of the pin so it cant back out. I had a friend hold the metal end of a small sedge hammer against the chain, while I used the punch and hammer on the other end, then we switched sides. Im not too familiar with your engine, but in general, you dont have to remove the crank to replace the timing chain. usually, just removing the clutch basket gives you enough access to replace it. on certain models though, the cases may be in the way, and removing the crank may be necessary. but before you break the chain or pull the crank, check to see if its possible to install a chain by just removing the clutch basket, and if necessary, the gears on the end of the crank.

Need to change a rotor. what tools do I need I already have the calipher off. I now have to remove the caliper mount.

Just completed doing my rotor place a car jack stand or stack 2 blocks on each side of your A frame. Let jack down and place some blocks behind front of and rear of tires left on the ground. To remove your caliper mount look on reverse side of caliper mount for 2 large hex bolts. Lightly spray around them with some liquid wrench (try not to get spray everywhere). Remove bolts with a wrench and probably a hammer or a ratchet and a hammer. Tap lightly on wrench using short strokes. If this doesn't loosen the bolts use some heat (heated wrench technique) small propane kit to heat caliper mount not too hot just enough to heat it up to just above too hot to touch then reapply wrench tapping lightly. You need a C-Clamp to push the caliper in. After caliper is in remove c-clamp from caliper. If the caliper wont go in you have to replace it. Remove rotor cap with a flat head screw driver and hammer tapping around the edges lightly. Remove the pin out of the bolt behind the rotor cap. Remove nut then remove rotor. Some vehicles will not have a nut and pin system, just a shaft to hold the rotor in place. If the rotor is rusted on tap firmly on inside (back side) of rotor to break it loose from the rust . Spray rust with liquid wrench let sit for 2 minutes then wipe dry. Use a clean cloth or rag to handle new rotor. Slide new rotor on the shaft and replace nut the pin (if no nut and pin continue to next step. Place caliper over rotor and screw in hex bolts on back side of caliper using a wrench or ratchet tighten 1/2 turn of being tight. Re -attach caliper mount onto caliper. Tighten 1/4 turn past tight. Lift truck with jack replace tire and remove jack stands and or blocks from under A frame let truck down and remove blocks

Various wrenches. A soft brush, or old toothbrush. An O-ring friendly chain cleaner (if, like most chains, yours is of an o-ring type.) O-ring friendly chain lubricant (again, if applicable.) A new cotter pin (when adjusting the chain tension.) Rags (for wiping grime off the chain.) A rubber mallet (optional.) A rear wheel stand (optional.) A tape measure (optional.
