Yep, this is normal. You need to adjust it.

The chain will stretch the most the first 600-800 miles then it will not stretch as much depending on how hard you snap the throttle.[a.k.a.. wheelies you do] also on the new bike the chain needs to be kept at 0.79-0.98 of an inch A little tighter than on the 03.
