If you don't know how to adjust it yourself, read the manual. It should have instructions on how to do it, and it is very simple.

Are you sure that your chain needs adjusting? It is supposed to have some slack in it. IIRC, more likely than not, your chain should have between 1" to 1 3/8" of travel (up and down). I believe my manual states 1 1/4 to 1 3/8 in of slack. If you are having the dealer tighten it up where it has no play, then that is probably the reason this is happening.
