Tightening Chain on Chinese 4 wheeler

Recommended Posts


wayyyy to loose.  It should have about a inch or so wiggle room- you're looking at like 3 or 4 inches lol  There should either be a tensioner or the rear axle adjusts- lift the rear end and there are some bolts to loosen and then the axle swings forward and backward- you want to pull it fairly tight as the chain loosens up with heat.  Also make sure the chain is well oiled so none of the links are bound up- that will make it jump sprocket too even if its tight.

that chain is so loose, it might have one too many links on it- I would try tightening it first tho

      Hello Guys, I’m new in this Atv life I have a dirt bike but my daughter wants an Atv. Yesterday I turned on the Atv and she used for about 40 minutes but the Atv turned off alone. I tried to turn on today but keep turning off. I check the battery, gas and oil and everything is fine. What I can do??

      I loosened the allen bolts on the carrier and when I went to put my driver in the alot to pull back and tighten the chain, I noticed the holes were facing the front of the bike. I tried to slide a driver in and tighten the chain but the thing would not budge. I nearly ripped the tip off the driver in the slot. Any suggestions?

      Has anyone had success in locating replacement spindles for the Coolsports (150ST and 200) (not to be confused with coolster although may be the same types) after the shatter?
      I've two quads that both have busted spindles. I've tried two different parts sites but they never shipped. 
      Also, has anyone ever tried to weld the steering linkage bolt hole parts back on after they crack off hitting a tree?
      The rest of the quads are in good shape; stinks to not be able to ride'm due to the spindles.
      (On a side note, anyone use a different aftermarket spindle as a replacement with success?)
      Tks,

      Can I use an old snowblower engine in my 90cc quad? The old one blew up. 
      Thanks for the help.

      Looking for a guru to help me get the top end back together. I'm stumped!! There seems to be an issue with the removable chain guide on the left hand side. In its current position (which is probably incorrect) there's not enough clearance to get the chain on the sprocket and be able to line up the timing. Does the guide rest on the side or is it supposed to be in the notch underneath? I have a manual, but it doesn't show the correct positioning on that guide. I tried to fit it in the notch, but then the cylinder head doesn't seem to seat properly. Let me know if you need pictures. Any help (and pictures) you able to provide will be greatly appreciated.
      Thanks in advance!!

      Hello! I picked up a YFM400 and I would love to talk shop with knowledgeable co-owners, and I'd love input about the machine from anyone here who clearly knows more than I do! Cheers from NY

      Ok, so I bought a 2006 bayou 250 for 200 bucks, kid couldn't start it and had no idea why it wouldn't run, I pulled the rope and felt what I thought was valve to piston contact, he wanted 500 and I talked him down to 200 and brought it home.  Sure enough, timing was way far out, timing chain incredibly loose.  So for fun I re-tensioned the timing chain and re timed it, got about 120lbs of compression, pretty low.  I cannot get the chain very tight but the the tensioner seems to work fine, the chain guides don't look very worn.  Also, when I took the head off the valves don't look bent and the piston has no discernible marks on it.  Is this an interference engine?  I sure thought I felt some contact with the pull rope but maybe no permanent damage was done?  Anyway, I plan on doing a full top end job as well as timing chain tensioners and hopefully that'll cure it.  Is there any reason other than chain stretch (I measured it and it's ok) or guide wear that would cause the chain to be so loose?  Thanks!
