Take that advice on leaning it over.
One issue, particularly when on the side stand, when the inner cover is off, and the lever spring is removed, it's possible for the adjuster shaft to slide out enough for the rear spacer washer to slip off and drop into the crankcase. Sometimes without you even realizing it. This can also happen even level or tipped but less likely. I hold my finger on the shaft so it stays in place as I remove the adjuster.
