The worst thing you can do is get the chain too tight, to check for a tight chain:

 

You can check the chain by using tie downs to pull the swing arm up until it is level then check the chain, it should have a bit of up down play. Then release the tie down and put the bike on a center stand and measure the slack in the chain; this number, or larger, measured with he bike on a center stand will insure that the chain is not too tight.
