I do not have my manual in the bike, but what is the range for chain slack? Was going to quickly check.

I like the sit on the bike, and be able to lift the chain until it just touches the swing arm, i ride two up all the time, I don't want the chain to go tight in a bump, loose is better than tight,

I do 20-30mm on the side stand. Funny how some manuals say on the centerstand when the bike isnt equipped with one. Or raise the bike from the center when many do not have the means to do so.
I have checked my method by setting the bike in my front wheel chock, sitting on it and checking chain slack in a loaded state. Not even close to going too tight.

When I got home I checked my manual, and yes, it is 20-30mm, measured on the side stand
