New member with 1973 TX500
« on: December 19, 2017, 05:14:54 PM »
Hi, my name is Dave and I live in Coventry in the U.K.,I have just purchased a 1973 TX500 from do motorcycles which has been imported from the states,it seems to be in very good condition with only eight thousand miles on the clock,I have checked the balance shaft chain and this does seem loose so will need adjusting,I have read as much as I can about this but I am a bit confused as to how to do it ,on the Dog bone fitted to my bike I do not have Allen screws but ordinary cross head screws,is this correct and is adjustment the same,thanks in advance,dave.

Hello Dave!

Welcome. I am a relatively new member too. I've noticed that this forum is not nearly as active as other motorcycle communities that I am part of. We've got a lot of "guests" and not enough people registering!

I will be doing my balancer chain soon enough as well. Let's keep in touch on this.
