96 Magnum 425 2x4 - How to tighten chain?

Hello,

I just bought my first ever ATV, a 96 Magnum 425 2x4 in great shape. The chain is a bit loose though and am hoping someone familiar with this ATV can give me instructions on how to tighten the chain so it doesn't make that clinking sound.

Thanks in advance!!!!

Thank you very much for taking the time! I have yet to find the manual, I have heard it may be available online.

Thanks again!
