Can someone make a video on how I can adjust my chain on my rebel 500, please?

Arches mechanic made a video about the 300 and it's the same as for the 500. One thing that I would correct is to loosen the lock nut and turn the allen screw clockwise to tighten the chain - do not tighten the lock nut to make the adjustments. There is an indicator label on both sides of the swingarm and they should be the same on both sides.
