Chain slips on up hill grade only and I've pulled the rear tire back to tighten the chain as much as possible.

    Are you sure it's the chain slipping and not the transmission slipping?

You may want to take your bike down to a local shop and have them put a chain guage on the chain to see if the chain is stretched... This should be a free service...
If the chain is stretched, it will tend to want to jump when under pressure... if this is the case, the chain should be replaced before further damage to the gears occurs...

I tightened my chain on my 04 r6 and after I tightened everything back up I can barey roll it in neutral when I'm sitting on it. Can you over tighten the rear axle nut?


YES, and you set the chain tension with - Countershaft sprocket centerline, the swingarm bolt centerline, and the rear axle nut centerline - ALL THREE IN A STRAIGHT LINE....Use a yardstick to make sure they are IN LINE!!! Have one of your fat buddies sit on it while you adjust the chain. Make sure the chain runs IN A STRAIGHT LINE regardless of the marks on the chain tensioners!!!!!!!! I have always loosened the chain a lot, kicking the tire forward so when I CORRECTLY adjust the chain it is MUCH EASIER to make sure the chain is in straight line (you should remove the chain guard so you can see the chain), do it slowly, rotating the tire while watching the chain, making sure IT RUNS TRUE!! - Forget the alignment marks!!... then slowly get the tension correct (with your fat buddy sitting on it).. remember what 3 things HAVE to be in a straight line... snug the tensioners good - NOW tighten the axle...do not over tighten. THEN finish snugging down the chain tensioners. reinstall the chain guard. Double check the axle nut!!!!

Chain tension done professionally!!!

Chain will not stay on


Jessica:

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!

My chain is super lose on my 1996 Honda xr200r how would i tighten it? would i have to move the wheel back?


You should have gotten an owners manual with your motorcycle that explains the procedure I detail. Basically you will need to loosen the rear tire and pull it back so the chain has the correct amount of slack, then tighten it back down to the correct torque values listed in your manual. You will also need to make sure to align the tire properly. Again, all this should be in the manual.

Chain coming loose


Yes. Loosen the two nuts on the back wheel. When they are loose just pull the wheel back until the chain is tight enough and tighten nuts while holding the tire in the proper position at the proper tightness of the chain. Make sure that the tire is running true when tightened.

On mountain bike the chain or peddles seem to slip or click goning up a hill. Is it the chain slipping or worn gear?


It sounds like your chain is loose. Flip the bike over and loosen up the nuts on the back tire and tighten the nuts as you are pulling the rim back making the chain as tight as you can. You might need someone to help you pull as you tighten the nuts.

The chain on my scooter keeps on falling off.


If there is no adjustment in the rear wheel, to pull the wheel back and tighten chain then you will need to cut out a couple of links and reset tire and chain or by new chain for that scoot because your chain is stretched buddy!!! Good Luck

Chain keeps fallin off!


Does the rear wheel go on such that you can adjust it to take any play out of the chain? If so, turn the bike upside down or put it on a bike stand. Loosen the back wheel and pull it so that the chain is tighter and then tighten the wheel. There are other possible causes but I suspect this since you recently removed the wheel. Also I'm not sure how often the chain falls off. If this doesn't work, ask again and let us know how often its coming off. Good luck!

Rear wheel removal


remove the chain. dont loose the pin. loosen the axle nut remove the axle. have a hand on the wheel as it will drop out at this point. install will be a bit harder. i like to lower the bike once the tire is under the fender. lower it until the holes are almost lined up. it beats trying to balance a tire and slip teh axle back in place. be sure to tighten the axle bolt to torque spec. too loose and you can get a shake, too tight and you can alter the path of the chain by a fraction and may cause premature chain wear.
