Snug it up and then another quarter turn to line up the castellation's in the nut for the split pin. It doesn't need to be THAT tight. If you want an exact torque, 43.5 ft lbs.

close enough

Tighten a chain on a2004 kymco 300 mongoose


Loosen rear axle nuts.
Pull back on the rear wheel until the chain is tight, then move forward just a bit and tighten both sides with your hands at the same time. Try to keep the wheel centered.
Tighten the right axle nut, center the wheel and then tighten the rear.
Turn the crank slowly. The chain should have slight play at the tightest point in the crank rotation.
If the chain is too tight or too loose loosen the right nut and move the axle forward or back, tighten and retest.
When tension seems OK loosen left nut and center the wheel, then retest.

How to adjust motorcycle chain


The rear wheel axle needs to loosen the two adjuster bolts tighter to. Move the wheel rearwards then tighten the axle nuts again as tight as when loosening. Allan

When Coasting chain rolls backwards and falls off


Chains usually fall off because the chain is not tight enough. With the bike sitting upside down on the seat and handle bars the nuts on the rear axle should be loosened and the axle moved rearward so the chain tightens. When it is tight the nuts can be tightened. In addition to having a tight chain the rear axle nuts adjust the alignment of the wheel to the frame. You know you have it right if both the chain is tight and the tire closest to the crank is centered in the frame. The nuts should be tight enough so they don't allow the axle to move when you ride it. I hope this helps.

I want to take off rear tire so i can replace it,please help


Place on Center stand, Remove both side panniers, lids first, then the 4 nuts/bolts holding the panniers on, remove licence tag, remove lower rear mudguard, it attaches with 3 nuts/bolts behind licence tag and 2 bolts either side of lower pannier lower chrome, you may have to remove the muffler mounting bolt on each side, remove the bolt from the front of the brake caliper, remove the rear wheel axle, lift the brake caliper out of the way as best you can without disconnecting the brake hose, remove all spacers and washers noting where thay came from, slide wheel to the right and roll backwards.

Refit in reverse order confirming washer/spacer positioning is the same as before.

Or you can hoist the bike in the air and work from underneath, I haven't tried this method.

I'm having fuel problems. Does the cavalcade have an electric fuel pump? Best way to check it out.


Yes. It is located under the right (sitting on the bike) below the seat. The fuel fitler is located there as well. Remove the seat and forward rear wheel guard portion that is under the seat. The fuel pupm can be operated by pressing the starter button only, if your clutch safety switch has not been bypassed. If it has, then the starter wil operate (and your cruise control will never operate) Pressing the starter only, allows you to "Prime" the carbs to fill the fuel bowls up proir to starting.

I cant remove the seat on my 87 gv1400


Remove the saddlebag lids, undo the 2 bolts just behind the shocks, one on each side of the seat. These are the only bolts that hold the seat on. Lift the rear of the seat about 6 inches to release the front tangs. Raise the front to the vertical and remove the 2 air lines from the front right side of the base and the one at the rear. Seat should now be clear of things attaching it to the bike. Join the worldwide Yahoo email group for these bikes via www.suzukicavalcade.com and ask some more questions.

Unable to keep chain tightened on 2005 Suzuki GXS 1300R


If you have set the adjusters correctly & properly secured the rear axle nuts I can only suggest that your chain may have reached its life expectancy if you raise the rear wheel of the ground & rottate it checking the chain for tight spots all the way around if you find tight spots its time for a new chain my advice is to spend the extra $ on a good quality item because of the horsepower out put of this machine it will chew through cheaper item like a kid with a bag of sweats

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!
