Adjusting Chain

I lost my owners manual, and I need to adjust the chain. Can anyone provide me the steps on how to adjust the chain and any helpful tips.

Thanks

Incidentally, congrats on doing the work yourself! It takes some extra time the first time you adjust your chain (or any piece of maintenance), but it gets faster every time you do it. Eventually it'll be a 5 minute chore, including getting the tools

Too much slack is better than too little - you don't want a tight chain binding up your suspension in the turns.

Thanks for the replies. I have close to 5000 miles and never adjusted the chain. I've lubed it twice and that's the only maintance to the chain. I think it's time for a good cleaning and relubing and readjusting.

Need to be getting your hands dirty a bit more often. One thing to mention on this thread is keeping an eye on your tyre pressures, they can be miles out if you have not checked them for some time. Get used to doing some basic maintenance regularly, it may save your life.
