Question about Motorcycles
You should have gotten an owners manual with your motorcycle that explains the procedure I detail. Basically you will need to loosen the rear tire and pull it back so the chain has the correct amount of slack, then tighten it back down to the correct torque values listed in your manual. You will also need to make sure to align the tire properly. Again, all this should be in the manual.

HELLO; Heres all you should have to do this,set your quad up on a atv jack or on a milk cartoon.Loosen the four bolts that hold the rear bearing carrior and back off your adjusters then push the carrier forward till it stops,relay your chain and adjust it leaveing a little slack, tighten your mounting bolts then, something I do, spin the rear tires to see if the slack is right if not loosen the bolts and proceed again with the proceedure turning out the adjusters a little more look at the chain as you dothis and you will see the slack in the chain on the top. GOOD LUCK.

SOURCE: new chain gets loose fast.
A worn set of sprockets will kill a a new chain in short order - particularly a worn countershaft sprocket.
The issue is that, with a worn sprocket, all the force is on only one roller at a time.
Overtightening a chain will kill it in short order as well.
The issue is that chain tension changes as your rear wheel goes up and down (the swingarm pivot and countershaft sprocket are not concentric so the distance between the sprockets changes as the wheel position changes. Typically, you want to be able to move the midsection of the chain up and down 1.5" to 1" after adjustment.
If the rear wheel is out of line, that will also kill a chain, but it will take longer - and your bike will not handle that great.
Finally, are you [i]sure[/i] it's the chain? You may have simply failed to tighten the axle nut sufficiently and the axle has moved forward (and is probably angled out of line as well)

It depends on the gearing probably 50 to 60 mph, possibly as high as 70 mph

Testimonial: "thanks super helpful"
Where the frame and the axle join you can see 4 large bolts on the in side(2 on top and 2 on bottom) (The bolts will be across from each other and all the same size) Loosen them up a couple of turns. Looking at the axle from the rear you can see on the bottom left side a long threaded rod pointing at you with a nut on it. If you tighten this nut, it will tighten the chain. Make sure you tighten the 4 bolts back up after you done
