timing chain stretched

Recommended Posts

hey,my timing chain on a crf450 05 is stretched and rattling,I have purchased a new one.But I was wondering if it was possible to remove a link from the old chain put it back in,would it then be tight again and what effect would it have on the timing and sprocket???

Nope, but if you try it let me know how it worked out! just messing with you, put in a new one and ride on.

It's a continuous chain (no master link). So, no, you can't remove a link from it.

i just did my first chain after 200+ hours on a 06.it was so loose i could almost put the cam gear on with out turning the tensioner at all,with the new chain on i have to remove the tensioner and it barely went on.

guess the old one was just a tad stretched.
