Dear,

not to worry for the same .

the new chain assembly often gets loose for the first 150 miles and needs to be adjusted.

get it adjusted and look for the lock nut and the clip at the end of the rear fork .
then the problem might not happen

thanx

Chain is sticking to back sprocket and making my bike **** when i accelerate


Sounds like the chain is worn out and needs replacing if there is no more adjustment!

A good idea is to replace the sprockets at the same time, as they wear along with the chain, and will cause a new chain to wear out sooner.

Knocking noise of chain in honda dream yuga bike when accelerating after shifting the gears. i have tightened the chain but still it happens.


That knocking noise could be that the teeth on your main drive are worn out and chain is jumping them on acceleration.Pull th primary cover and check the drive gear for chain on motor sprocket.Replace it if worn to that point.

I hear a cluttering noise coming from my sprocket. I believe the front is worn pretty badly. Does anyone know how to get the front sprocket cover off? I think the clutch cable may be the problem but I...


The front sproket normally last for a very long time so I am pretty sure it is not the cause of this problem.Try to adjust the chain tension and this may solve this problem.Also if the rear sproket are worn out or it could well be the chain that needs replacing.Hope this gives you an idea.

How to replace chainpoulan pro 18"


First lay the new chain out with the cutter teeth facing forward on top. You should wear gloves because it takes very little to inflict a deep cut with these chains.

Take the tool that came with your saw and loosen the two nuts (don't take them off yet)that hold the sideplate on over the chain. Leave the saw setting on its bottom.

When the nuts are loose take the screwdriver end of your wrench (or a screwdriver) and loosen the chain quite a bit. Wearing the gloves, make sure when you pull it forward it moves very loose.

Now take the two sidecover nuts all the way off. You'll see how the chain goes arpound the sproket. Push the bar back toward the sproket until it is loose enough to remove the chain.

The bar will come off too, and it is important to note the small nub that goes in the tensioning hole on the bar near the bottom of the saw, fairly close to the sproket. Keep the chain straight; I hang mine on nails driven into the wall in my shop. You can get them kinked up so that they seem they'll never straighten out.

Take this time to clean all behind the sidecover itself, and the entire enclosed area. There will be sawdust, twigs, etc. I blow mine off with compressed air, but protect your eyes. Take something, toothpick, Qtip, or the like and clean the groove all the way around the bar, including the oil holes near the rear.

You should now be ready to insert the new chain, putting the bar with the slot lined up with the sidecover bolts, and gently get the chain on the sproket. This may take a couple tries before you get it right. When it is on (you'll see you have to hold the bar up or it will tip too much) hold the bar in place with the tightener in the hole, and slip the side cover back on. Tighten the nuts just enough to hold the bar in place, then tighten the chain tension screw, while holding the bar. Tighten the side nuts more, until the bar is held in place.

When it is just tight enough to hold the bar but not prevent the bar from moving forward when you tighten it, tighten until you can still move the chain, but there is no visible slack in the chain. You should be able to grab the chain at the bottom and with moderate force pull it away from the bar about a half inch.

I like to pour a little oil on a new chain so it has plenty of lube. The chain will stretch because it is new. Run the saw at about 1/3 throttle for a minute, holding the end close to something to make sure the chain is throwing off a fine thread of oil. Then run it at 1/2 speed about another minute. Rev it a few times, make a practice cut or two, and it should by now need another slight tightening.

Good luck!
