it loosens up normally homey ......... take it to patrick and he will hook you up ...its not much at all .... or just take it to a dealer around you but they might blow your head off with their prices ...or you could hit javi's shop up on bellair and the belt way ...but you should learn how to do it

if you're over here in the northside...you can swing by my shop and i'll show you how to adjust your chain

you dont want a tight chain.....you want a minimum of 1 1/4" slack. if you have too tight of a chain, it will hinder your rear suspension from traveling like it should and could cause you to lose control in the event of some huge bumps

take your finger and push the bottom side of the chain up to the swingarm.....then on the top side of the chain try lifting the chain with your finger, it should not move up that much....if it moves up a lot, your chain is too loose.
