Love,

Seriously, the manual says to put it on its sidestand, and doesn't say to be sitting on it. You've found another, probably unrelated way to screw the proverbial pooch, my friend.
I adjust mine while up on a rear stand. Works just fine for me. After the first time I adjusted it, I put it on the side stand just to check and see. There wasnt enough of a discrepancy to bother with.
And yes, you can do serious damage by having the chain to tight.
