How to replace timing chain?

hey. i was think about changing my timing chain due to too much noise how hard
is it to change it and also do you have to adjust it or does it adjust itself? do you have to have any special tools?

well from my experience its not to hard but its not to easy side cover will have to come off and the head and jug will to main thing when your replacing it is to have patience and try not to get it out of time then you'll have a big problem

special tools alot of metric sockets , torque wrench , and like i said alot of patience

if it was me while i had it apart id just go ahead and rebuild the top end new rings valve job and all just me tho

and the chain has a tensioner just like in a car it tightens its self

I had replaced my timing chain in about an hour...that goes for the camshaft as well. I let it stand on the rear rack took out front crankcase and just took the 2 clutches out and started from there...pretty easy job for me imo.

Best way for me would be replacing the timing chain, the tensioner all that...If you broke the tensioner the chain would be out of time...so its better to be safe than sorry by replacing them..

Garage
The clutches have to be removed to replace the timing chain and it has an automatic adjuster so no adjusting required. I have yet had an adjuster go bad on this model of machine. The front cover is all that needs to be removed to replace it (besides the internal components, clutches).
