Chain will not stay on


First, check the chain and sprockets. Check the two chain sprockets for worn or bent teeth. If either of the sprockets is damaged, replace them. If the sprockets are OK, Check the chain for any damage If the chain is damaged, replace it. You are checking the chain for kinks, stiff links, damage to the link side connectors, and checking that the chain is not bent (side to side) Check to see If the chain is loose. If it is, you'll need to loosen the rear axle nuts and pull the rear tire backwards to tighten the chain, then tighten the rear axle nuts. *Make sure that the rear sprocket lines up with the front sprocket*. Just lay a straight edge along the two sprockets, ( A yardstick will do), and make sure that the sprockets touch the yardstick along the whole length of the sprockets. If the rear sprocket is cocked (not lined up with the front sprocket) loosen the axle nuts again and push on one side of the rear tire or the other side until the sprockets line up.
When you are finished tightening the rear axle nuts, pull up on the chain between the sprockets... the chain should not move up or down more than 1/8 of an inch. The chain will stretch over time, and you need to check the chain for looseness before riding.

Happy and safe riding!

Sprocket will not stay on transmission

The sprocket on the transmission should have a set screw that locks it into place on the shaft. Make sure the flat side of the shaft is lined up with the set screw. It is a small allen head set screw. The link below will take you to an image of this sprocket. The set screw in view on the left side of the transmission.

How do i set camshafts on 1999 duvil northstar

Remove camshaft covrs
Remove front cover
Remove or fully retract all three timing chain tensioners
Remove oil pump
Primary and secondary chain guides should remain in place. Rotate crankshaft until sprocket drive key is at about 1 o'clock position.
Set crankshaft and intermediate shaft sprockets into primary drive chain with their timing marks asjacent to each other.
Install crankshaft and intermediate sprockets over their respective shafts. Rotating crankshaft as necessary to engage crankshaft key in sprocket without changing the timing mark relationship.
Install Flywheel Holder Tool (J-39411) to lock crankshaft in position. Install intermediate shaft sprocket retaining bolt and torque to specifications.
Route secondary chain for left cylinder head over inner row of intermediate shaft teeth.
Route secondary drive chain over chain guide, and install exhaust cam sprocket to chain so camshaft drive pin engages the sprocket notch marked "LE" (Left Exhaust).
There dhould be no slack in the lower section of the chain, and the camshaft drive pin must be perpendicular (90 degrees) to the cylinder head surface.
Install the intake camshaft sprocket into the chain so the sprocket notch marked "LI" (Left Intake) engages camshaft drive pin, while drive pin remains perpendicular to the head face. Minor adjustments can be made to camshaft position to get pin to engage by using a wrench on the hex cast into the camshaft.
Install sprocket retainer bolts and torque to specification.
Repet steps as above to install the right secondary chain to the right camshafts. The right camshaft sprockets are marked "RE" and "RI". In addition, the RE sprocket must contain the camshaft position sensor pickup.

When do i change the rear sproket

When your chain is worn the sprockets share the damage. If your chain was razor sharp or wearing unevenly: it's time to change : front sprocket (****** side) rear sprocket and use the proper size chain to match. They sell them in sets. It's quite possible only your chain may need to be changed . Inspect the sprockets! If you haven't done so, purchase a repair book for your bike and carry it with you. The information is found on page.... Good Luck, hope this helps!

I can't get my chaing to stay at a normal tension. it either gets too tight or too loose! is this a common problem? perhaps a defect? or whats the solution

assuming you have the chain adjuster in the bar adjuster hole. This and the bar nuts will normally keep the bar in place and the chain adjusted. However if your drive sprocket on your saw is worn (deep grooves where the chain rides on the sprocket) it will cause the chain to try and climb over one tooth pulling the bar toward the saw loosening the chain. This can also happen if you put a worn chain on a new sprocket. In the end this overtight or loose condition will lead to failure of your sprocket nose bar. One other way can be the chain, the bar and the sprocket are not all the same pitch.

How do you know a chain and sprockets need replacing? Chain seems to be stretching regularly

When the chain adjusters are nearing maximum adjustment range the chain is definitely ready to be replaced. Rapid stretching is not a good sign. It is good that you are concerned about the condition of the sprockets. Most guys don't even think a sprocket wearing out. Below is a diagram showing different wear patterns on sprockets.tombones49_294.gif

What is the best sprocket/chain combination for this bike .My riding is 50/50 town / country.Which is best:"o"ring or non "O"ring?

you are best to stay with the original configuration, it gives you the best of both worlds, as for a chain o ring is the best, i recommend yu replace chain and sprockets as one, putting a chain on a use sprocket will accelerate wear and tear

Chain wont stay on

Did you replace the chain with a new one ? If the chain is to big for the sprockets than you need to purchase a link remover from anywhere that sells accessory's for bikes.

Remove one link at a time untill the chain fits perfectly.

Post back if you have further info. Thank you for choosing Fixya!
