1985 Honda XR 250 R replace timing chain I got a xr250r and I put a new timing chain and chain guide in it and when I was putting it back together I just can't get the chain to get tight, like there is still play in it, now it won't start but it turns over and gets spark and gas and has ok compression but makes a noise when I turn it over sounds like timing chain because it's loose I just want to know how to tighten it and I put new bolts in the tensioner
