Hi, I tightened my honda cbf 600's chain but i can not loose it again and now it's too tight.


steps to loosen the chain on a CBF600:
-check the chain tension while the bike is sitting on the kickstand in neutral. It should have 1" to 1.5" FREEplay when measuring halfway between the front and rear sprocket.
-loosen the rear axe nut approx 1 full turn, this should require a 27mm socket.
-look for adjusting bolts on either side of the swingarm, sticking out from the rear plate. There will be an adjusting nut and lock nut on it.
- Loosen the 10mm locknuts on both sides (bringing it towards the rear of the bike) while holding the head of the 12mm adjusting nut from turning.
- Adjust both of the adjusting nuts outwards to loosen the chain, inwards to tighten the chain. 1/2 turn on the adjusting bolt will change the chain freeplay by about 10mm.
- Hold the 12mm nut, and snug the 10mm nut up to it. This will lock the adjusters in place.
- While holding the bike, press firmly on the back of the rear tire, This will move the rear wheel forward, and taking up any slack that was created by loosening the adjusting nuts.
- (Optional step but suggested) Use the hatch marks on the swingarm, just below the axle, to gauge whether the rear axle is adjusted evenly on both sides. Make any adjustments necessary to align the axle evenly on both sides. This will require moving the adjuster on one side ONLY. Consider your chain tension while doing this step (if necessary) since you can either loosen one side or tighten the other. After making any adjustments, press the wheel forward again and re-check your alignment.
- Using a 27mm socket, tighten the axle to the proper torque, which should be around 85 Ft.Lbs. If you are not sure about whether or not the axle nut was properly tightened, be sure to ride the bike carefully to a motorcycle shop and ask them to double check it.
-Finally, check the chain tension and make any adjustments necessary by following the previous steps.

How to change belt


it's a big job, the front cover protecting the motor unit has to be removed, the rear roller has to be loosened inwards by using the large allen key to release the tension. The front roller has to be loosened and lifted out of the treadmill (it may need cleaned to take away any rust)
The rear roller can be lifted out and then the bed (running deck) needs unscrewed (allen keys) this should slide out. The new running belt should be put in place in the treadmill, place the front roller in place, the bed and the rear roller, fasten each of them up and adjust the rear roller so that the belt runs straight and it tight enough that when walking on it, you can't stop the belt.

Alternator belt diagram for isuzu bighorn


All above is Bull Sxxxt. Isuzu bighorn Alternator belt only drives water pump (fan) and alternator. Size of belt is 17x1000 and its a tight fit onto pulleys so it makes you think its wrong belt, but trust me its not. As if you get 17x1025 or 17x1050 belt you wont get it tight correctly due to not enough adustment on alternator. To change/adjust the belt very simple. Loosen 3 bolts (14mm socket) on power steering pump (its 2 belts that diving power steering and air con), loosen tensioner on p/s pump. Remove those 2 belt - to get access to alternator belt adjustment bolts. There are 2 bolts you will need to loosen One at the bottom of alternator (14mm socket and 25mm extension bar to get it easier) another one is 12mm on tensioner rail. Than adjust tension by screwing 12mm long bolt that mounted across the tensioner rail until you get tension correct. Correct tension is about 68kg. But i do it just to get it nicely tight without too much of sag. REMEMBER DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN the belt as you will crush berings on water pump or alternator.

I am trying to hange the serpentine belt on my 09 lancer rallyart and it keeps slipping off


Locate the two belts on the left side (passenger side) of your Mitsubishi Lancer. The outer belt is a serpentine belt, operating four pulleys and the inner belt is your alternator belt.

  • 2 Follow the serpentine (outer) belt to the three pulleys lined up vertically near the front of the engine compartment. Locate the middle pulley, which is the tension pulley for the belt.
  • 3 Loosen the bolt on the middle pulley with a socket wrench by turning counter-clockwise. Do not remove the bolt, just turn it a couple of times. Loosen the tensioner bolt on the side of the of the pulley, facing the front of the vehicle.
  • 4 Remove the serpentine belt and then loosen the bolt on the alternator. With the alternator loose, move it forward so that the alternator belt loosens up and then remove belt from the pulleys.
  • 5 Install the new alternator belt by placing it over both inside pulleys. Tighten the tension on the alternator belt by moving the alternator back and keeping tension on it by holding it back with a long screwdriver. While the alternator belt is tight, use a socket wrench to tighten up the bolt on the alternator.
  • 6 Place the serpentine belt back on the pulleys and then use a socket wrench on the bolt on the front of the tension pulley. Once the serpentine belt is tight, tighten up the bolt in the middle of the tension pulley.
  • 7 Start the Mitsubishi Lancer's engine to test the alternator belt and make sure it is working properly. Once you have verified it is working, turn the engine off.

    Belt routing


    V-BELT ADJUSTMENT CAUTION
    On models equipped with an electric cooling fan, disconnect the negative battery cable or fan motor wiring harness connector before replacing or adjusting drive belts. The fan may come on, under certain circumstances, even though the ignition is OFF. Alternator Drive Belt
    1. Position a ruler perpendicular to the drive belt at its longest run. Test the tightness of the belt by pressing it firmly with your thumb. The deflection should not exceed 1?4 in. (6mm).
    2. If the deflection exceeds 1?4 in. (6mm), loosen the alternator mounting and adjusting arm bolts.
    3. On 1968-72 V8 and 6 cylinder models, use a prytool to move the alternator toward or away from the engine until the proper tension is reached. NOTE: Apply tension to the front of the alternator only. Positioning the prytool against the rear end housing will damage the alternator.
    4. On 1973 and later V8 models, place a 1 in. (25.4mm) open-end or equivalent wrench on the adjusting arm bolt and pull on the wrench until the proper tension is achieved.
    5. Holding the alternator in place, tighten the adjusting arm bolt. Inspect the belt tension. When the belt is properly tensioned, tighten the alternator mounting bolt. Fig. 1: Alternator belt adjustment 86651054.gif
    Power Steering Drive Belt ALL 6-CYLINDER AND 1971-72 V8 MODELS
    1. Holding a ruler perpendicular to the drive belt at its longest run, test the tightness of the belt by pressing it firmly with your thumb. The deflection should not exceed 1?4 in. (6mm).
    2. To adjust the belt tension, loosen the adjusting and mounting bolts on the front face of the steering pump cover plate (hub side).
    3. Using a prytool on the pump hub, move the power steering pump toward or away from the engine until the proper tension is reached. Do not pry against the reservoir as it is relatively soft and easily deformed.
    4. Hold the pump in place, tighten the adjusting arm bolt and then inspect the belt tension. When the belt is properly tensioned tighten the mounting bolts.
    1973 AND LATER V8 MODELS
    1. Position a ruler perpendicular to the drive belt at its longest run. Test the tightness of the belt by pressing it firmly with your thumb. The deflection should be about 1?4 in. (6mm).
    2. To adjust the belt tension, loosen the three bolts in the three elongated adjusting slots at the power steering pump attaching bracket.
    3. Turn the steering pump drive belt adjusting nut as required until the proper deflection is obtained. Turning the adjusting nut clockwise will increase tension and decrease deflection; counterclockwise will decrease tension and increase deflection.
    4. Without disturbing the pump, tighten the three attaching bolts. Fig. 2: Power steering belt adjustment (slider type) 86651055.gif
    Air Conditioning Compressor Drive Belt
    1. Position a ruler perpendicular to the drive belt at its longest run. Test the tightness of the belt by pressing it firmly with your thumb. The deflection should not exceed 1?4 in. (6mm).
    2. If the engine is equipped with an idler pulley, loosen the idler pulley adjusting boot, insert a prytool between the pulley and the engine (or in the idler pulley adjusting slot), and adjust the tension accordingly. If the engine is not equipped with an idler pulley, the alternator must be moved to adjust, as outlined under Alternator Drive Belt.
    3. When the proper tension is reached, tighten the idler pulley adjusting bolt (if so equipped) or the alternator adjusting and mounting bolts. Fig. 3: Air conditioning belt adjustment 86651056.gif
    Thermactor® Air Pump Drive Belt
    1. Position a ruler perpendicular to the drive belt at its longest run. Test the tightness of the belt by pressing it firmly with your thumb. The deflection should be about 1?4 in. (6mm).
    2. To adjust the belt tension, loosen the adjusting arm bolt slightly. If necessary, also loosen the mounting belt slightly.
    3. Using a prytool, pry against the pump rear cover to move the pump toward or away from the engine as necessary. WARNING
      Do not pry against the pump housing itself, as damage to the housing may result.
    4. Holding the pump in place, tighten the adjusting arm bolt and recheck the tension. When the belt is properly tensioned, tighten the mounting bolt. Fig. 4: Air pump adjustment points 86651057.gif

    Y 1999 Mitsubishi Montero Sport A/C belt always come loose what is the cause of that please''


    The tensioner pulley bracket has an adjustment bolt to set the tension, and it has a bolt through the middle of the pulley that locks the pulley in place once it is tight. I suspect that the adjustment bolt backs out from engine vibration and the center bolt is not tight. Set the belt tension where you want it then use a 14 mm to tighten the pulley center bolt and you should never have the problem again. Same thing backwards, if you need to change the belt later, you will have to back off the center bolt before being able to loosen the tensioner bolt etc..

    (not too tight, but not too loose) press the belt to ensure its not too loose!
    When belt tightness is enough, tighten the the other lower one of the two bolt then the lastly tighten the pivot bolt.
