I just checked the service manual for my bike, an 08 GSXR 1000....


ADJUSTING
• Loosen or tighten both chain adjuster bolts  until there is 20
– 30 mm (0.8 – 1.2 in) of slack at the middle of the chain
between the engine and rear sprockets as shown. The chain
adjuster position relative to the reference marks  on both
sides of the swingarm must be equal to ensure that the front
and rear wheels are correctly aligned.
Drive chain slack:
Standard: 20 – 30 mm (0.8 – 1.2 in)

The chain will be the tightest when the chain and swingarm are parallel to the countershaft sprocket.. as it travels up or down it will loosen.

So that is ideally where you should set your slack, and check a couple points in the rotation like Grinchy mentioned.

Even at the tightest point of wheel travel, 1/4 inch of freeplay is far too tight. I would say closer to 1/2-3/4 at that point.

Always better to err on the loose side versus tighter.

Forget all this chain BS -
Add two cups of sand and 1/2 cup laundry detergent to your gas. The sand and soap will work it's way through the system and polish everything very smooth. In almost an instant you will notice all noise will stop. You may not even hear the engine running.

Thanks for everyones help and advice. I will be doing a 520 chain conversion and probably a -1 front sprocket. MAYBE +2/+3 rear. But I will be replacing both sprockets. My bikes coming off the street and into some track armor.
