Lol have you seen my bike. Its 10 yrs old and raced in the desert there are no stickers. Measured from where? Every bike is different

Halfway between front and rear sprocket shafts of the chain on the top of swingarm.

Pretty much every jap bike has the same basic spec: go to the back of the top of the swingarm rub strip, and measure from there.

Use two fingers as a max looseness and 1.25" as ideal slack. You are measuring slack, not tension.
