CAM Shaft Chain

Okay so I took my bike into the shop ad they told me my Cam Shaft Chain needed to be tightened and they also mentioned a retentioner that needs to be adjusted. Can anyone guide me in the right direction to get this done. I would like to do it myself.

there isn't any way your CCT needs replaced already.
shit man my bike has 32k miles on it. and it's fine. along with all of the valves.
unless you've been using some really shit oil or something or it's a factory defect I couldn't see a 08 needing replaced yet. there is no adjustment to a factory Cam Chain Tensioner, it's an automatic tensioner.

it's still under warranty anyway I"m sure. let yamaha fix it.

yeah, as stated its an automatic tensioner so you can't tighten the chain. Also, those things are good most times for the entire life of the engine and rarely need to be replaced, so get clarification if thats what they really meant, and if they did, take it somewhere else.
