Without seeing it, I would guess that you have a stiff link. Try turning you bike upside down and watch your chain as you slowly turn your cranks. When you see a link raise up, try working the chain links with your fingers on each side to try and loosen it up, Otherwise you have to have a chain tool and take it off of the bike and just replace it.

How ti adjust a drive chain on a yamaha 80 dirt bike?


check both sprockets. if they show lots of wear and the corners are rounded off you should replace them.

if the chain is very loose and stretched out you will need to replace it too.
if all that checks out ok then there are 2 adjusters (one on each side if the rear axle bolt)
you should be able to loosen the rear axle bolt, adjust them the same

How to fix my alighnment


Provided you have not been in an accident that has bent your frame,upper and lower triple tree, or forks, the only alignment you can make is to adjust your chain. If the the front wheel is not tracking with the back wheel you just have an improperly adjusted chain. On each side of the swing arm by the rear axle are two chain adjuster cam/wheels. The have numbered bump/stops. Both chain adjusters should be set in the same numbered bump/stop to align the front and rear chain sprockets and the front and rear wheel tracking. the adjusters are on the machine for the purpose of setting the amount of chain slack. Your chain should not be too tight or too loose. If you grab your chain in the middle and push it up and down, you should have a slack measurement of 1 1/4 inches from the bottom edge of the chain to the top edge of the chain. If the setting is off the best way to make the adjustment is to raise the rear wheel off of the ground. A race bike stand is very helpful for this and oiling and caring for your chain. Harbor freight tools sells a cheap rear stand for about $35 (buy the cheaper one piece non-collapseable stand). Pull out the cotter pin, loosen the axle bolt, turn both adjusters till you have the correct amount of slack and they are both set to the same number. Tighten the axle and recheck the slack. If you notice when spinning the rear wheel that the chain goes tight then slack, you have a stretched section of chain. If this is the case you should replace the chain and any worn sprockets at this time.

How do I tighten chain on 2004 daytona triumph 600


Good Afternoon. To Adjust the chain:

1. Position the bike on its stand, or up on paddock stands if you have them.
2. Loosen the rear wheel spindle nut (see diagram below)
3. Slacken the adjuster locknuts on each side of the swinging arm
4. Moving both adjusters by an equal amount, turn the adjuster bolts clockwise to increase chain free-movement and anit-clokcwise to reduce chain free-movement.

Important - Ensure that the wheel spoindle blocks on both sides of the bike reamin in contact with the adjusters through this process.

5. When the correct amount of chaiin free-movement has been set, push the wheel into form contact with the adjuster. Tighten both adjuster locknuts, and the rear wheel spindle.

How do i adjust the chain on my 2004 kawasaki 250f


Simple task, get the bike up on a stand so the back wheel is off the ground. Loosen the rear wheel nut (big 21/22mm nut attached to the spindle that goes through the wheel hub) not too much, just enough that the wheel will move when you adjust the adjusters. Now, on either side of the swing arm you will see a bolt, with a lock nut, running from inside the swing arm, onto the axel block, which the spindle goes through. Adjust these either out or in, depending on whether you need to loosen or tighten the chain. If loosening the chain, you might want to give the rear tyre a kick forwards to move it in (after you have loosened the adjusters inwards). So thats how you do it, simple. The chain should have no more than half an inch movement up and down after adjustment. Lock the adjusters in place using the lock nut, then tighten the big wheel nut up, job done.

Changed belt to chain. Now adjuster keeps losening on 2008 haley road glide


This is an unusual problem but there may be a reason. One reason is that a chain does not run as smoothly as a belt. Chains vibrate, badly. You didn't mention if the rear wheel was moving. As long as the rear wheel isn't moving, at least the adjustment isn't changing. You could use a nylon lock nut on the adjuster bolt, a "prevailing torque nut" or simply two nuts jammed against each other. Another problem could the "concentricity" of the sprocket. With the bike off the ground, roll the rear wheel and check for tight spots in the chain. When the chain goes tight, notice the position of the wheel. The hole in the center of the sprocket may not be concentric with the outside diameter of the sprocket. This could be applicable to the front sprocket as well.

Good Luck

Clicking noise from rear wheel


Is your bike chain drive? It sound like you have a link in the chain hanging up. Check it and lube it.

Drive chain goes loose and tight on back wheel turn


No.That was the problem.The chain and the sprockets needed to be renewed.
When you will take, the rear sprocket's base, off the axle check it's bearing.Just put your finger in and turn it slowly to see if it "locks" instantly.It will be nice if you renew it now that you disassembling the chain drive system.
