Chain install help, please! 83 XR500

Recommended Posts

Hi all- I just got a new chain for my 83 XR500, but I need to loosen the right side axle nut to adjust the chain (it's too tight right now). THe only problem is, on the right side axle nut there is an "L" shaped piece of metal in the nut. I assume it's there to keep the axle nut from loosening? How do I get that rod out? It has a little free movement... My manual isn't here yet and I want to finish this chain install! Thanks for your help!
