hi guys, what do I turn on the rear end of my 84 250r (westcoast swinger) to tighten the chain. Is it the big spanner nut inside the spocket? if so do i turn it up or down? thanks, Joe

the large thing beside the sprocket.
Be sure to loosen up the 2 "pinch" bolts (see first pic) or else it probably won't budge.
Down to tighten, up to loosen ( if wrong ~ reverse procedure :) )
The bolt head right in the middle of the carrier is a stopper bolt so you can't rotate the carrier around and around.
