Just adjust the wheel back for less slack.

Loosen the axle nut. use a 10mm and bring it back. Tighten axle nut, done.

my stock chain bounced a little when rotated up on the stand too.. i just thought it was the chain getting torqued and untorqued since there is literally no load on the transmission



by sloppy.. i assume you mean it bounces around... but then again "assume" makes an ass of u and me! but for real, sorry if thats not what your referring to

Yes, put bike on stand, loosen axle nut, rotate adjusters on both sides until chain is tightened to proper spec, retighten axle nut. It's really quite simple. You can google how tight it should be if you are unsure.

I don't even use a rear stand when I adjust my chain.

I'm probably suppose to use the stand but, fcuk it, I'm lazy.
