New to the Ninja

Two weekends ago I bought a 2011, Z1000 super clean, beautiful bike with only 13,421 miles on her. While out riding tonight and practicing wheelies, heard a loud clunk. I realized my chain had loosened, so I registered on this site, to find out how to fix it. first time seeing the elliptical tensioners, and want to do it right!
I'm sure Ill learn a lot here!
Thanks in advance all!

Gday mate, welcome to the forum.
As @Koggs has posted, very simple process to adjust the chain and alignment.
Have fun getting to know the new ride and enjoy the wheelies...

Make sure that back pinch bolt is tight on both sides.
