Question about 1995 Yamaha FZR 600

How does the timing chain adjuster work? My motor is a little noisy and I was looking to tighten my timing chain. the manual doesnt tell me how to just adjust it. It tells me how to assemble it (not very well either). So I have been searching the internet on how to adjust the timing chain on my bike. Please help!!

Hi,if it is anything like the 400r,the tensioner will be automatic and non adjustable,normally the chain guides wear out before the adjuster reaches it outer limit,they are quite esay to replace but you need to take the cams out to do it,you will probably find that a lot of the noise coming from the motor is the clutch basket,as a matter of course they are quite noisy once you start to get a few km on the bike...cheers

SOURCE: How does the timing chain adjuster work?

Well I guess the type and model of motorcycle would help.

However, most camchain tensioners are basically automatic. They bear against a long, curved nylon dampener that rides the slack (trailing) side of the chain. This pressure is made by a spring inside the chain tensioner housing itself and is not a serviceable part.

If housing is bolted up tight, all available tension is employed. If chain is still slack...camchain is worn out must be replaced.

Camshaft and rocker arm gaps maybe providing all the noise also, maybe time for a top end service, whatever the bike!!
Cheers.

Gear shifter is not locking in any gear. Shifting back to lowest


Most likely the little ratchet in the shifter is gummed up.

Squirt lost of WD 40 and or GT 85 in to the shifter. Blast it in to all of the nooks and crannies, kepp working the gshifter all the time.

You may need to adjust indexing.

How do i tighten the chain


Look for an adjustment screw under the chain. You have to loosen the bar to allow the chain to be tightened. Turn the screw clockwise a little bit at a time, pulling the chain up at midpoint above and down below the bar to confirm it snaps back into the groove when released. Tighten the bar when finished with the adjustment.

double check all youre timing marks . loosten tentioner and adjust cam.then tighten chain .manually turn motor over twice then check timing marks again this is a little tricky sometimes because when you tighten the tentioner the cam will move. you have to have the chain in a spot to compensate for this movement.

How to adjust cam chain on 150crf 2005yr


Here is a picture of what your cam chain should look like. Note the carb is in the upper right of the photo (so this is the left side of your motor facing backwards towards the carb)

This particular photo is from a CRF250F but the diagrams I saw look almost identical. It will be obvious that there will be some tension vs. losing tension when you screw in or out the adjuster. Just make sure that you aren't over-tightening it. Just take up some of the slack if its noisy.

Cannot move the chain by hand after the bar has been tightened.


First be sure the chain is on going in the right direction. When looking at the bottom of the bar the sharp tooth should be going towards the motor. When you put chain back on are the chain teeth properly engaged in the sprocket on the motor. Remove the cover again, check that teeth are in sprocket. Make sure pin from adjuster screw is engaged in the hole in the bar. Before you tighten the cover bolts, make sure chain will turn by hand. If not adjust the adjusting screw. Once adjusted, tighten cover bolts. Check again after tightening bar.

How do i tighten the timing chain


The timing chain should be self adjusting, spring tension takes up the slack as the chain wears. If your timing chain is noisy, or rattling, then it is worn out and needs to be replaced.

Poss loose timing/cam chain!


Cam chains are self adjusting. They have a tensioner that takes up slack as the guides wear and the chain stretches. You may be able to get away with new guides if your chain isn't too stretched. Look for pieces of plastic in the oil, which will signal work guides. It is possible you are hearing the valves rattle, and it would be time for a valve adjustment.

ZX6 Noisy Cam Chain


if your chain is makeing nois it would be a good idear to replace the chain a manual cam chain tenshioner will take the slack up but what about the valve timeing a worn chain will throw it out due to the chain stretching plus the manual tenshioner will make the guides wear faster if ya auto matic tenshioner has reached its limit that means replace chain no ifs or buts

Chain tension


Hi Sally, I guess you don't have the owners manual. It tells you how to adjust chain tension. If you look around near the motor side of the bar, you should see two nuts that hold a bracket tight against the bar and an adjustment screw or bolt or something to loosen or tighten the chain by moving the bar or making it longer or shorter. Adjust that so that the bar is as short as possible and put the chain back in place. Then tighten that feature till the chain is snug again and tighten the two nuts to hold the bar firmly.
