Actually Tom, I'll suggest that the lower run of the drive chain needs to be loose enough to be able to be Lifted Up and Touch the Rear Tip of the rubber underslider, but Not bend around the rubber slider and touch the metal of the swing arm.
But there is an exception to this, does the bike happen to have lowering links? Then the chain can be a little tighter, say 1/8 - 1/4 inch from touching rubber.
