Loosen the Back Nuts on the Side of the Rear Wheel, Then use a Wrench to Turn the Bolts extending out the Rear of the Bike in Clockwise to pull the Rear Wheel Back, Thus Tacking Slack out of the Chain. Do Not over Tighten as the CHain Tightens some itself with Flex when you put Weight on it. Retighten Axle Nut. Thats it.

The chain has come off. I put it back but it is too loose. How do I tighten it


Should be a screw next to the bar. you can tighten it and it will tighten the chain. Keep in mind that the 2 bolts holding the bar and cover in place have to be loose to do this.

How to tighten a chain on a champion chainsaw


There are some bolts that allow you to extend the bar that the chain runs on. Find them and extend the bar a bit to tighten the chain. Don't forget to tighten them again before you use the chain saw.

After you install bar,chain,and brake cover(tightened)the chain wont turn.


Tighten the adjusting screw with the two nuts loose but snugon the middle of the chain on the top of the bar. Tighten the chain screw until the chain is loose enough to raise the chain up about 1/2 inch then tighten the mounting nuts tight. Then see if it is ok.

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.

I got a crf100 05 and is wondering how to tighten the timing chain because it is loose?


If the chain is loose then you need to replace the chain the adjuster is automatic so you cant adj the tension but you do need to ck the guide some times the guide is worn where the adjuster pushes on the guide so if the guide is good then replace the chain but look close at the guide first that will wear out before the chain will strech most of the time let me know what happens thanks Don 678 768 2732

Loose chain


it sure can happen. You can also take a link out of the chain to shorten it also, best thing buy a new chain.

How to tighten a loose chain


To tighten a loose chain you need to pull the cotter key pin from the rear axle then loosen but do not remove the nut. It just has to be loose enough to slide in the swingarm. At this point there are tension adjusters on the ends of the swing arm you tighten them to take the slack out of the chain. NOT TO TIGHT! You should have 1 inch of play in the chain this is up down play not front to back. I push the chain up the highest it can go and measure how far it falls. NOTE: TURN THE TENSION ADJUSTERS THE SAME AMOUNT THE SAME DIRECTION IF THE AXLE IS TWISTED YOU WILL THROW THE CHAIN. This can make for a bad six months!

Cannot tighten the chain bar


Make sure the bar is positioned on the bar adjusting pin before you tighten cover. Adjust tension with bar adjusting screw, then tighten bar bolts.
