Question about TVS Victor GLX Motorcycles
Chain loosed how to tighten
I doubt you are going to find a video. I could make you one but it would cost too much in time and money. Best buy a service manual and if you cannot do it without a video you are likely best to take it to a dealer OR if you want to knoe how to do it yourself find someone in your area that knows how to do it, get it done while you watch and video it yourself so you can do it yourself next time.

SOURCE: loose chain
Loosen the Back Nuts on the Side of the Rear Wheel, Then use a Wrench to Turn the Bolts extending out the Rear of the Bike in Clockwise to pull the Rear Wheel Back, Thus Tacking Slack out of the Chain. Do Not over Tighten as the CHain Tightens some itself with Flex when you put Weight on it. Retighten Axle Nut. Thats it.

SOURCE: How to tighten the chain
Loosen the rear axle nut mounting the wheel to the swing arm, then loosen the lock bolt on the top of the chrome adjuster ( left and right adjusters ), then loosen the lock nut on the long adjuster screw. Run the nut about 1/2" down the length of the adjuster screw. Now turn the adjuster screws equally in a clockwise direction to remove the excess slack from the chain. There should be index lines on the swing arm that the single index line on the chrome adjuster is referenced to. Example; If the chrome index line meets up with perhaps the fourth index mark on the swing arm on the left side, the right side should be at the same position. This keeps the wheel in alignment. When the adjustment is finished tighten the axle nut then tighten the adjuster lock nuts and then tighten the lock bolt on top of the chrome adjusters.
Leave some slack in the chain. Mid-chain you should be able to move the chain up and down about one and one half inches. If the chain can be lifted at the rear sprocket it is too loose. Lubricate the chain and the control cables on the bike. What condition are the front and rear sprockets in? The teeth should be bluntly rounded at the tip. If the teeth are sharp at the tip, or getting that way, then the sprockets are way past time to be replaced. Note that a worn sprocket can quickly ruin a new chain.
Please top rate this solution. Thanks!

SOURCE: How to tighten a loose chain
To tighten a loose chain you need to pull the cotter key pin from the rear axle then loosen but do not remove the nut. It just has to be loose enough to slide in the swingarm. At this point there are tension adjusters on the ends of the swing arm you tighten them to take the slack out of the chain. NOT TO TIGHT! You should have 1 inch of play in the chain this is up down play not front to back. I push the chain up the highest it can go and measure how far it falls. NOTE: TURN THE TENSION ADJUSTERS THE SAME AMOUNT THE SAME DIRECTION IF THE AXLE IS TWISTED YOU WILL THROW THE CHAIN. This can make for a bad six months!
