I have not on the XX but on plenty of other motors so take this how ever you want...
1. Set motor to TDC
2. Pull valve cover and zip tie cam chain to cam gears so chain cant jump time
3. Remove old tensioner and install new one.
4. Set tensioner hand tight.

This is where you are gonna find different opinions on how to set it...I have used both. I have set hand tight then turned another 1/4-1/2ish with a wrench and left it. The other is tighten and try to get roughly a 1/4 of free play between the can gears...either way make sure to roll the engine over a few time a check again.

Now comes the "grey" area...if you hear it whining its to tight and if you can hear it slapping it to loose lol..

Hope this helps, and once again this I am sure that there are many way to do it and some will say that the ways I posted are wrong, but like I said I had done both on RZR's and street bikes this way.
