Hey guys:
Is the first time I have a bike with swinging arm, and I do not know how to adjust the chain. The chain is very loose ( with slack) Any hints or diagrams. Thank you. Emilio. :-D

There's a lock nut on the top at the rear of the arm. then you use the large "C" wrench in the OEM toolkit to turn the large toothed 'cog' you should see inboard of the sprocket, which is an eccentric adjuster.
Adjust the chain for about 1.5" of vertical travel at about the centre of the swing arm, then re-tighten the lock-bolt.

If you have a single sided swingarm then there should be 50mm freeplay top to bottom on the chain.
According to my owners manual, 1.4 - 1.6" or 35-40mm
(both imperial & metric are quoted in my personal hard-copy)

Here is both the spec & also the procedure.
Thank you Decosse .Emilio
