Question about Garden
I have a 2005 KLX 300 and I think my chain is too loose. What is the correct setting for this chain
A quick and easy check that can be done any where. Loosen the blade bolts, suspend the saw by the blade, tighten the blade bolts while in suspension. This will put the right mount of tension on the chain.

If a new chain ::
make and model is important here, as are guide bar length
a particular chainsaw, may be available with 12,14,16,18,20,22,24,26 inch guide bar,
likewise different saws (even from different makers) use the same size of chain
a chain for this saw may be sold in a variety of lengths or
may be sold in the longest length only and require links removed to suit smaller bars.
back to the store, with the saw, for confirmation
If an old chain::
stretched way beyond safety, replace

the problem with torqueing the nuts is that it's not enough tighting.i tell my customers that you need to tighten them as tight as you can get them.the nuts will not vibrate loose then.don't worry about breaking the studs they are very hard.

The adjusting screw is usually found on the right side of the saw close to the bar, near the bottom. You will need to loosen the two nuts on the side that hold the bar tight. Loosen them until the bar lifts up and down (about 1/2") with your finger.
There should be a combination spark plug wrench and screwdriver that came with your saw. If not, use a slot screwdriverto tighten the chain while you hold the bar up with two fingers.
When adjusted properly, there should be no hanging slack in the chain when it is warm. It should rest just against the bar so that you can grasp it with gloves on and pull it toward you.
When it is tightened thusly, tighten the two side nuts while holding the bar up with two fingers. If you don't tighten the two nuts enough, it will loosen and the chain will have slack again shortly.
Remember that the hotter the chain gets, the looser it will be. Make sure your chains is getting plenty of bar oil. Never use regular motor oil.

SOURCE: Husqvarna 359 leaking chain oil
Remove the sprocket cover, bar, and chain. Find area where oil is discharged from case--is any part of the rubber seal damaged? Next, use compressed air to clean sawdust and dirt from oiler ports in rear of bar as well as the chain slot. Are you using motor oil instead of bar oil? Make sure there is nothing to prevent bar from making close contact with oiler port in case. Reassemble all parts and adjust chain tension.

SOURCE: loose chain
If there is no more adjustment on the bar yes you should buy a new chain, excessive chain stretch my be by over tightening the chain before use, the chain should be loose enough that you can lift the chain out of the bar a little bit you should be able to lift the chain far enough to see around one full link
Chains can bought at your local farm store the one for my saw cost around $15-$20.00
