Should be adjusters just behind the rear axle. You loosen the axel bolt and turn the adjusters, making sure to keep them equal. Do not overtighten, as the chain needs some slack for the suspension to move without stretching the chain. You should get the owner's manual to set the chain tension properly.

    With a single arm, I would expect there to be a slot for the axle to ride in, no? I'm not familiar with this particular bike, but i can look it up.

    here you go--sorry for wrong guess:
    Adjusting the chain is also simplified with the single sided swingarm since the hub rides in an eccentric. To adjust the chain, simply loosen the pinch bolt and turn the hub until the chain is properly set. Retighten the pinch bolt and it’s done.

Chane slack


Slacken the wheel nut a couple of turns ,then simply adjust tension with the chain adjusters at the rear of the swingarm legs. Look carefully you will see notches marked on both sides of the swingarm by the wheel spindle these must be the same on both sides, your manual will tell you the chain slack for your bike.probably about 25-35mm put a ruler up to the chain and using finger pressure push up on the chain ,this is the chain slack. Once done tighten the wheel nut up to correct torque setting.( manual or call local dealer),then replace split pin with new through the wheel nut. Double check all your work no loose nuts,then sit on the bike get a friend to wiggle the chain there should be small slack as first meashured 25-35mm again, if not re-try,once experienced you will do it first time.
