Adjusting the chain is really quite easy. First off, it is easiest to do if you have the bike up on it's rear stand. Loosen the 2 bolts at the back/top end of the swingarm.

I would suggest using a socket for this (14mm I beleive) as the tool supplied in your kit tends to strip easily.

You will notice a little drum with teeth on it right behind the rear sprocket. The "C" shapped tool fits on to this.

I forget which way to rotate it, but you will notice the chain getting tighter if you are going the right way.

Also, no need to worry about centering the wheel upon tightening, as it stays centered on it's own.

Hope this helps.
