1. Put the bike on the workstand. If you don't have a stand leave it on the ground; a stand just makes things easier.
2. Shift to the small rear/large front.
3. Turn the high limit adjustment screw (probably the front one) until the jockey pulley lines up under the small cog.
While you are at it check the low limit. In fact low limit is usually set first.
1. Shift to the big rear/small front.
2. If necessary, turn the low limit adjustment screw (the other one) until the pulley lines up under the big cog or possibly a teeny bit inboard.
If you don't already have one, buy a book on bike repair and maintenance. It will save you time, money and headaches.
If it ain't broke, mess with it anyway!
