Exclamation How to Tighten my zx-6r Chain?

Chain is really loose and need to tighten it. I would take it to Motorcycles Unlimited but my work hours are the exact same as motorcycle dealers and repair shops. So theres no way of takin it to them. I'm pretty sure that I know how to but want reassurence (sp?) A quick how to and/or description?

loosen the rear axle nut...

both sides of the swingarm has notches which indicate how far back the axle is.....make sure both sides are aligned with the same exact notch.

there will be one locking nut on each side that locks the tensioner in place...loosen that nut (the nut against the swingarm, the nut against the axle is the tensioner)

then undo the tensioner til you get the desired amount of tension, tighten the locknut, tighten the axle. and you're done.

chain should have 1 1/4" freeplay
