I would suggest replacement of the timing chain and tensioner just to put that unknown variable to rest, though it is unlikely to be worn if the bike truly has only 19,000 miles on it.

1/4" gap of the doubled image isn't much and replacing the chain may help very little. Easy as it is to access the chain, you might just put it back together and enjoy the bike till later.

Your call.
