post pics of the rear axle and tensioners

from the looks, you should have to loosen the axle nut, then there is a tension adjuster on both sides of the axle which is a bolt and jam nut, loosen both jam nust(towards the front of the bike, the bolt head is against the axle blocks) you want to adjust both sides equally so go a certain # of turns on one side and repeat on the other (you are the bolt out to tighten the chain so lefty loosy, righty tighty) there might also be a scale on the swingarm to judge where it is adjusted to. you dont want the chain tight, if you roll it after adjusting you will probably find a loose spot and a tight spot, find the tight spot and sit on your bike to see if it loosens, you want just enough play to be able to move the chain maybe 1/4" once you like it, lock down the jam nuts and get your axle bolt tight and test it out, if it makes exsesive noise, it might be a little tight, just loosen it a little and you should be good

I'm on the NW side and can show you how to properly adjust your chain...

I have a pitbull rearstand and the necessary tools. Just let me know.
