Welcome to FixYa
Dear User
I hope following Direction can Help you
Loosen the bolt on the rear axle. Tighten the 10mm bolts. Measure the distance between the frame and the rim, make sure it's equal. Give your chain about 1-1.5 inch play in the bottom middle, (between wheel sprocket and output sprocket-on the gear box). Do this is small increments, 1/2 turn at a time, then measure. Re-tighten the main bolt, make sure it's quite tight, otherwise you'll lose your wheel. Best thing is to use 1/2 inch ratchet with a 24 inch handle extension (pipe or something that can fit over the ratchets handle) ..

How to change a chain on a 2006 600 katana

hi depending on what type of chain is fitted to your machine, you will almost certinly need a chain riveting tool, without this you will have to remowe the rear suspension arm from the bike to fit the chain in 1 piece, best advice if you are not sure is to have some 1 fit it for you,inproper fitment can leade to problems, if the chain fails due to incorect fitment. check out the video on the link below.
