    2007 crf150f cam chain tensioner question

    Ok,let me simplify my question To remove it do you need to release tension using the centre screw?or simply unbolt the two bolts? When reinstalling it,is it the style that you need to turn in the centre screw to back off the plunger part while you bolt it back to cylinder? Then release centre screw to set cam chain tensioner BTW not to be rude,but telling me to buy a manual doesn't help, that's what forums are for,to help.

    2007 crf150f cam chain tensioner question

    I know, just thought someone here would have experience and or knowledge
  3. Can/how do you rest the auto cam chain tensioner on my crf150f? I just bought one for my wife, the valves seem to be ticking, not too worried as I've adjusted valves many times in the past with my rfvc xr250r, but just looking for info I couldn't find on this style cam chain tensioner. I can get a new one through Honda for $50, any special process for replacing it? I've read tdc for taking it out, but do they come pre set for tension? Thanks for any insight

    1985 xr250r build thread

    I haven't forgotten about this thread, my engine needed a few helicoils in the head, and another hole had to be re taped because it didn't have enough metal surrounding it to drill out and insert a helicoil. My new pro x rod and bearings are pressed on the crank and indexed, cylinder is bored 75.50mm and ready to roll. Engine and exhaust is being sent out in the next few days for powder coating/ceramic coating. In the meantime I re assembled my foot pegs. Hope to have it back before the snow flies but don't know as my mechanic for the engine only works on it in the evenings and weekends.

    Looks like fun! Honda has discontinued a lot of parts, so new old stock is about your only option, very few aftermarket companies for the 84-85 twin carb xr Getting parts to 🇨🇦 added a lot to my cost

    Slow process, waiting for a couple of exhaust valves (nos) to show up, and a rubber bladder part for my carb. New connecting rod is installed and indexed, cylinder is bored to 75.50mm, need to send engine cases and exhaust off for ceramic/powder coating. I had some free time this morning so I installed my new pro link decals, very high quality, afe graphics. On a side note, my chain guard has seen better days, but I can't locate one anywhere, I see some models don't even have one. Is it necessary? Mine looks like ass

    Series 58 daystar fork boots

    Those look really close to my OEM boots. I'll be ordering a set here soon in royal blue. I know what you mean about flash on a camera, not forgiving

    Series 58 daystar fork boots

    I'm confident that if series 69 was right for your 1984 than they'll be right for my 1985 as the only difference is color. I re counted my ribs just now and I have 24. Mine are dark from age, and one has a crack, defeating their purpose. One question, do your fork boots come all the way up to the bottom triple clamp? I've seen someone on here who restored his xr (1984) and the boots don't go all the way up like they should (see picture) Thanks for the help.

    Series 58 daystar fork boots

    Mine have 24 ribs as well. From what I can see the 84 and 85 boots were the same besides the color

    Series 58 daystar fork boots

    I'm looking for blue ones. Thanks How many ribs? Some I see listed have roughly 10 more ribs than my oem boots. A picture would be great!

    Series 58 daystar fork boots

    Are these the correct series I need for my 1985 xr250r? It lists top diameter (which works) and has the same number of ribs as my oem Honda ones. States 11" of travel, and no mention of lower fork diameter. Anyone who's replaced theirs have any input?

    Why is my bike smoking?

    Is the smoke coming from the end of the muffler? I.e. Burning from internal combustion. Or is the oil leaking externally from a bad gasket and dripping on something hot and smoking? If it's from the muffler, you'll likely need to bore at least one size over (75.50mm). Either way you'll quickly spend close to your initial purchase price making it stop.

    Added a few more parts, a little bit at a time, as I know my engine won't be ready for some time
