Yeah the manual says 25mm which is wrong.
35mm set it and forget it.
Get a fat mate to sit on your bike or lean over and pull the suspension down and check it,
you'll see that that 25mm is too tight even at mid stoke.
Chains tighten as the suspension compresses.
4000 hard road klm then 3000 track klm and ive NEVER re-adjusted the stock chain or the non Oring (I fitted for performance reasons.)
The more you adjust your chain, the more you stretch it.
By then its too late and you need a new one.
