SOURCE: drive chain adjustment
To adjust the chain you need to make sure you make the adjustment with the swing arm parallel to the ground, (this is the tightest point in the arc of the swing arm moving rotation), at that point you want to be able to put two finger between the chain and the swing arm at the swing arm pivot bolt. This will insure proper adjustment every time. The best thing to do is have somebody sti on the bike off the stand to make sure the swing arm is at its MAXIMUM arc, otherwise you stand a significant chance of over tightening it and this can and WILL cause SERIOUS damage to your engine. You will rip the output shaft bearings out of the center cases.
You also want too make sure you have proper wheel alignment as well. There are marks on the rear of the swing arm for adjusting the chain, make sure you have the marks on the adjusters in the same location on BOTH sides of the swing arm.
Please let me know if you need further assistance.

SOURCE: chain needs to be 1/4
1/4" is too tight, you should have one inch minimum. Check it while the bike is upright sitting on the tires. Move the longest part of the chain up and down and you should have one to one and a half inches of play.
As a comparison, my BMW 650 has seven inches of suspension travel at the rear and my spec is 45 to 55mm which is about an inch and 3/4 to two inches.

SOURCE: timming chain adjustment
Most likely you have anautomatic cam chain tensioner, which cannot be tensioned, and the only remedy is to replace the cam chain (if it's stretched). If, however, you have a manualy adjusted cam chain tensioner (highly unlikely), you have to look up the tensioning value in your workshop manual.
