I've always done it in gear buy that's just me. It helps with it not rolling.

How do you roll the wheel to find the tightest spot to adjust the chain if it is in gear? ;)

Ride carefully - You are invisible.

I'd rather be next to a rider that can maintain a controlled wheelie than a muppet on their phone.

If you keep it clean & lubed, you will rarely have to adjust it.
I fully agree with everything you are saying. My original chain has 23,000 miles on it, and I use the kerosene/DuPont Chain Saver method. I make ZERO chain adjustments between tire changes.

Haha touché. I wasn't even thinking about it. I've always thrown mine up on a stand.

What a brainfart.

I do 1.5 inch max slack for the chain (as per Dave Moss) and Ligthtech chain adjusters (came with the bike :)) to make sure both sides are aligned.

I go by the service manual, usually err on the looser side which says: The vertical movement of the drive chain must be in the range of 20 to 30 mm.

My original manual says 13mm - 32mm. I have mine set ~25-28mm.
