I have always set the tension on my chains to where if you lift up at the mid point of the bar there is enough clearance between the bar and the bottom of chain to slip a nickle into. This makes the chain tight enough to rotate freely but not loose enough to allow chain to come off. If you have it to tight it puts added strain on both the bar and chain.Also always make sure you have chain oiler set to keep a film of oil on chain at all times.

If you tug on the chain in the middle of the guide, the guide teeth should come out of the guide bar groove with a gap of about 1 - 2 mm (about 1/16 inch). This is from the Ryobi Users Instruction Sheet, please rate this response.

How do I get the chain back on


Remove the two nuts on the side of saw. Then remove cover and slide the bar backwards to create slack in chain. make sure the tension adjustment nut (usually square head) is in groove of bar. When chain is back on bar slide the bar forward taking up the slack. Put the cover back on, put the nuts back on and with a slotted screw driver turn the bar adjustment to take up the slack. The chain should lift off the bar slightly but not so much that it is loose.

How do you adjust the timing chain on a 1985 virago 1000. She's sputtering a lot


the cam chain is usually self adjusting unless its very slack its probably ok ,if it is very slack the adjuster may be stuck or the chain may be badly worn,also check the valve timing is still ok if the chain is slack.spluttering is usually a carburation issue or an ignition issue,loose camchains just make a noise until they get so loose that they jump teeth and bend valves.

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.

Cam chain tightness? how too adjust?


The cam chain tensioner is an automatic device. When the chain wears past a certain point and the tensioner can no longer compensate for the slack, it must be replaced.
Failure to replace a slack / worn chain can have severe consequenses, even if the chain does not break.

Drive chain slack?


Typical chain slack should be about two inches from bottom edge of the chain to the top. Grabbing the chain in the middle (halfway from sprocket to sprocket) and moving it up and down. After adjusting , you should raise the rear wheel off the ground and spin the back wheel checking every 6 inches or so that the slack does not get tighter or looser. If the chain gets tighter as it goes around the sprocket it is an indication that the chain is stretched at that point and needs to be replaced.

The chain keeps getting tangled and the toilet keeps running. The chain is very difficult to untangle


there is too much slack in the chain. when the handle is at rest, there should be very little slack in the chain. and when you flush, don't slam the handle. also, if the handle is all the way down when you flush and the flapper is being pulled too high, leave a one link slack. and the hook that holds the chain, clamp it closed to avoid the chain getting rehooked on it.
