Hi guys,


Hoqw do I tighten the chain on my Kawasaki eliminator 125??


Its got about 3 inches of play up and down it must be too lose?


Is it just a matter of moving the back wheel back?? How do I do that ??


cheers!!

loosen rear wheel nut (but don't remove) there should be 2 little bolts that

will have markings near them, make sure markings same each side and

chain only has 1/2 inch of play and tighten wheel again :wink:


may look like this

Iv done it!!


Took me a while to get both sides equally back, the chain is quite tight with about 1/2 inch movment if pressure applied


Hope fully its not too tight...


If it was would it just break?

You'd find it difficult to change gear if it was too tight.

Was it snail cams in the end?


Took me a while the other day to get both sides back equal. I take it you've checked to ol' wheel alinement?
