Take note that the "slider blocks" do not always fit tightly in the slot and get a bit cocked,
so if you measure that distance using a caliper do it right in the middle!

I know it's supposed to be easy to sight down the chain, but I'm not very good at it anyway...
I bought a knock-off version of the motion pro tool on eBay... it's a little clunky to use,
but for $7 including shipping it's worth it as I don't adjust chain very often...

PS: I find the threads on the adjustment jack-screws way too coarse ... one "flat" is ~5mm of tension
I loved the "snail" adjusters on my old Honda....
