How do we tighten the chain on Polaris scrambler 2x4?

Loosen the two carrier bolts on the back of the axle. Then loosen the two bolts at the bottom that hold the rear breaks to the axle bearing housing. Then on the right side of the housing, it looks like you could get a big wrench on those hex cuts and turn axle upward direction to tighten. I use large channel lock pliers. That will tighten chain because it will off set housing toward the back of the ATV. I recommend turning axle down first to get the grease fitting that is blocked by gas reservoir. That is an important grease fitting for axle bearing's. It is an easy job, but tighten carrier bolts well when finished.

Good Luck.
