Where your hitch is, lossen the 2 bolts on each side, take hammer and small punch to roll the rear axle cam.

sometimes you don't have to hit. look on the underneath left side bolt ,it under there .sometimes it might need a little penetrating oil on it ,but it should slide easily.

I will explain you in detail.

1. Park it on ground level.
2. Raise the rear end.
3. loosen the clamp bolt on each side.
4. Insert a drift into the bearing housing hole.
5. Then rotate the bearing housing downward until the chain is taut.
6. Tighten each swing arm clamp bolt.
7. Measure distance between 20 links and the chains upper run.
8. Check the chain.

how to do:

looking at the picture below, the first thing you need to do is loosen bolt #30 (2 of them) and nut #27. you shouldnt have to take the nut off of the bolt, just loosen it as far as you can.

now, looking at the pic below. see #13? that is your axle housing on the center of your drive axle. the bolts you just loosened up clamp around that lobe. you will notice on the housing, there is a large "nut" machined into the housing. you need to get a wrench big enough to fit that nut, and you use the wrench to turn the axle housing. you will notice, the axle sits off center in the housing, and the housing itself is basically a big lobe. to tighten the chain, you roll the lobe towards the front of the machine, the axle to the rear. to loosen the machine, do the opposite, roll the lobes to the rear, so the axle moves to the front of the machine. when you get the proper chain adjustmen, just tighten the two bolts back up, and your done.

did that make sense? and if nobody chimes in, you can try calling a dealer and asking the service manager about if the machine should be weighted or not, and what the play in the chain should be. good luck!
