It's detailed in the owner's manual. Pretty straightforward.

Chain adjustment:
Turn the rear wheel slowly until you find the position where chain tension is tightest.
Put motorcycle on the centre stand and push the chain up pressing with a finger at mid-length of swingarm. The lower stretch of chain must have a slack of 30 mm (ST2) 32 mm (ST4).
Chain tension is adjusted as follows:
Slacken the nut of the wheel spindle, tighten (turn clockwise) or slacken the screw on either side of the swingarm equally to increase or reduce chain tension. If you are slackening the chain, you will have to push the wheel forward.
