Cam Chain Tensioner

"I own a 2012 Kawasaki ZX10R that I drag race occasionally with thin oil in it. My motor was exceptionally loud especially on startup but eventually sounded like a tapping noise coming from the engine and I figured it was because of the race oil being real thin but when I called APE they told me that they have a fix for ZX10's in the form of a manual cam chain tensioner and sure enough after installing it my bike was quiet and sounded like the beast she was."
Thanks APE...

Can you go through the procedure you used to adjust the APE tensioner.
