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.

In the rear end of machine there is an eccentric that adjust the chain . There are 2 bolts that loosen the eccentric .Loosen the two bolts , loosen the brake collar, a large pair of channel lock pliers works well . Be carful with the greese zert in the middle , use the channel lock pliers and rotate the eccentric to tighten chain . With the weight of the normal rider sitting on the machine you want an inch to an inch and a half play up and down in the middle after you adjust it . Tighten the bolts down and tighten the brake collar .

I had the same problem, but then I looked at the rear tires, the one on the right ( same side the chain is in ) was closer to the front of the four wheeler than the other tire. Then I lifted the rear of the quad and it was because my rear bearings were gone and needed to be replaced, which would pull the rear tires back in line tightening the chain.
