The Fourtrax 300 has a spring loaded auto adjuster.

Yeah, the timing chain tensioner automatically adjusts as the timing chain wears. Of course, it can only adjust so far, so if the chain has slack, then the chain needs to be replaced.

I have also heard of people using the 250 Big Red chain, but I always just went with the stock chain so I can't really speak for any benefits. I think it's supposed to be stronger, though.
