There isn't an adjustment, the chain slack is taken up by the springs that are part of the rear derailler. However, if the derailler gets too dirty it can't pivot very well and the bottom of the chain will tend to hang slack. The easiest thing to do is give a good spray with WD40. Put a rag behind it so you don't get oil on the wheel. The two pivot points you are try to oil are roughly in the areas circled in red on the image below. The pivots are behind the chain. If you pull down on the bottom of the chain a couple of times you will see the pivot points I am talking about. Make this motion while you are spraying to help get the oil in there and displace some of the dirt. Good luck! how do i tighten the chain on GT Avalanche 2.0? - 11_30_2012_1_45_05_pm.jpg

Special tools and workshop equipment required
t Dial gauge -VAS 6079-
t Puller -T10094 A-
t Dial gauge adapter -T10170-
t Camshaft clamp -T10171-
t Counterhold tool -T10172-
t Locking pin -T40011-
t Spark plug spanner -3122 B-
t Counterhold tool -3415-
t Torque wrench (5...50 Nm) -V.A.G 1331-
Procedure
- Remove valve timing housing > Chapter.
- To turn crankshaft, reinstall bearing bush, crankshaft pulley -2- and crankshaft bolt -3- and securely tighten crankshaft bolt (use counterhold 3415).
- Remove spark plug from No. 1 cylinder. Use puller -T10094 A- and spark plug wrench 3122 B.
- Screw dial gauge adapter -T10170- into spark plug hole to stop.
- Screw dial gauge -VAS 6079- and extension -T10170/1- in to stop and lock in position with lock nut -arrow-.
- Turn crankshaft in direction of engine rotation, to TDC No. 1 cylinder. Note position of small needle on dial gauge.
- Then turn crankshaft back 45° opposite direction of engine rotation.
- Press tensioning guide rail -1- in direction of arrow and lock piston with locking pin -T40011-.
- Mark direction of rotation of timing chain -3- using felt-tip marker.
- Remove bolts -2- and remove camshaft sprocket -1- with timing chain -3-. Counterhold using counterhold tool -T10172-.
- Renew bolts -2-. Tighten bolt -2- to 50 Nm (use counterhold -T10172-).
- Turn inlet and exhaust camshafts until camshaft clamp -T10171- can be pushed into holes in camshaft to stop.
Locking pins -arrows 1- must engage in holes -arrows 2-. Inscription "TOP"-arrow 3- must be readable from above.
Note
Camshafts must not be pushed axially whilst turning.
- Install a M6 bolt -arrow- hand-tight (do not tighten) to secure camshaft clamp -T10171-.
- Remove camshaft sprocket bolts. It is absolutely necessary to use counterhold tool -T10172- for this.
Note
Camshaft clamp -T10171- must not be used as a counterhold tool.
- Remove one camshaft sprocket.
- Place timing chain over camshaft sprockets, observing chain direction of rotation, and install camshaft sprocket again.
- Tighten camshaft bolts until camshaft sprockets can still just be turned on camshafts.
- Tension timing chain by removing locking pin -T40011-.
- Turn crankshaft in engine direction of rotation to TDC No. 1 cylinder. Permissible deviation from TDC No. 1 cylinder: ±0.01 mm.
Note
If crankshaft is turned more than 0.01 mm past TDC, then turn crankshaft back 45° against engine direction of rotation. Then turn crankshaft in direction of engine rotation to TDC No. 1 cylinder.
- Hold camshaft sprockets -1- and -4- in this position with counterhold -T10172- then tighten bolts -2- to 50 Nm.
Note
Crankshaft must not move and timing chain -3- must remain tensioned on both sides when tightening camshaft bolts.
- Remove camshaft clamp -T10171-.
- Turn crankshaft two rotations in direction of engine rotation to TDC No. 1 cylinder. Permissible deviation from TDC No. 1 cylinder: ±0.01 mm.
- Insert camshaft clamp -T10171- to stop in camshaft openings.
If camshaft clamp -T10171- cannot be fitted
- Repeat adjustment.
If camshaft clamp -T10171- can be fitted
- Remove camshaft clamp -T10171-, hold camshaft sprockets with counterhold tool -T10172- and tighten bolts -2- a 1/4 turn (90°) further with a rigid wrench.
Note
Camshaft sprockets must not move on camshaft whilst tightening.
- Turn crankshaft two rotations again, in engine direction of rotation, to TDC No. 1 cylinder. Permissible deviation from TDC No. 1 cylinder: ±0.01 mm.
- Insert camshaft clamp -T10171- to stop in camshaft openings.
If camshaft clamp -T10171- cannot be fitted
- Repeat adjustment.
Further assembly is basically the reverse of the dismantling procedure. In the process, note the following:
t Installing valve timing housing > Chapter.
t Installing poly V-belt > Chapter.
t Renew oil seals for camshaft sealing cover and oil them before fitting.

After you install bar,chain,and brake cover(tightened)the chain wont turn.


Tighten the adjusting screw with the two nuts loose but snugon the middle of the chain on the top of the bar. Tighten the chain screw until the chain is loose enough to raise the chain up about 1/2 inch then tighten the mounting nuts tight. Then see if it is ok.

Chain dowsn't stay tight


Between the chain bar and the body there is an adjusting screw, if the adjusting screw is stripped it will not pull on the chain bar to tighten the chain.
procedure for tightening chain. loosen the chain guard nuts, tighten the bar adjusting screw by turning to the right or clockwise, the chain has to roll freely around the bar but not bind. check with gloves or rag, don't use bare hands to avoid accidents. once chain is adjusted, tighten the chain guard nuts. good luck!

I have a scwinn lockett 16" girls bike with a lot of issues Brakes dont wok training wheels fall off chain falls off seat moves my 6yr old has only rode this bike 4 times an d I spent lots on...


those things are easy fixes. i'll give you a basic guide:
CHAIN:
1. place the bike upside down and loosen the nuts holding the back wheel in place.
2. position yourself sitting on the floor with the bike between your legs and your two feet pressing against the seat.
3. ensure the chain is in place, and then pull the back wheel towards you (ie. towards the back), hence tightening the chain.
4. while ensuring the wheel is straight, retighten the nuts while holding the wheel in place >easier if someone is helping youBRAKES:
option 1: tighten the cable by looking for the are where it meets the brakes. there should be either a screw or a nut.
option 2. loosen the two brake pads, and bring them closer to the wheel. make sure they aren't rubbing on the rim when riding however. >nb: this is easier to do when the bike is upside downSEAT:
there should be a tightening device located under the seat. simply tighten.
TRAINING WHEELS:
use a wrench to tighten.

hope this helps. any additional help, please feel free to ask

Chain


Put it up on your stand lossen the axel and remove the bolt on the bottom of the shock. Then tighten your chain and lift your swingarm up until its horizontal with the ground, then the chain should have almost no play. Not completely tight, but almost no play. Tighten the axel, and the bolt on the shock, and your set,,,
