    First you have to loosen the four allen head bolts in the back of the swingarm
    Then you will see right to the right of the sprocket,they have this aluminum piece with slots or holes in it,stick a long wrench or screwdriver in ther,and you push it forward to loosen the chain,and pull it back to tighten the chain,after thats all done retighten the allen head bolts and your good to go

    mine must be starting to rust or something because when i do that i just end up messing up the slots. what i have to do is wrap the jaw of a pair of channel locks and grab onto it.
