Chain Tension

Should you measure chain tension with the rider on or off the bike? Right now I've got about 20-25MM of freeplay off the bike.

Well I just did a bunch of work to the bike (new tires, SS brake lines, new pads, fuel filter, Coolant flush) so I wanted to make sure I got the chain tension right.

Thanks for the link/info.

the file name is chain adjustment 704k.wmv (2nd last link on the page) or you can use this link to open directly.
