after adjusting the chain whether slackening or tightening you need to remove the end play from the adjuster, hence final movement anti clockwise to 5Nm, or just nipped up firm.
if the end play in the adjusters are not taken out the chain will slacken even though the axle nut is torqued up tight
... removing the mufflers puts me off even though i have a torque wrench.
When you have your car tyres replaced the garage doesn't torque the wheel nuts, sure they put a torque wrench on after tightening just to insure they are +specification. I've yet to see a tyre fitter check the torque and find it needs another nip.
