A chain tends to 'stretch' a little when new. I usually find one adjustment is needed after new then long intervals between adjustments. For example, my bike has about 8300 miles and only one chain adjustment sometime during the first thousand miles. When you find it needing frequent adjustment, it likely is old and time for replacement. DO NOT over-tension the chain. It will wear faster and can cause expensive damage to the bike. I run mine on the loose end of the spec.
