Checking drive chain tension

Has anybody adjusted the chain tension ?
If yes what is the procedure ?
In the manual Fig. 182, they show a swinging arm screw that I suppose you have to untight and then adjust the chain with the ducati tool.
Does anybody know the torque for the swinging arm screw ?

Thank you

I did not find anything for the Monster 1200. I know that for the multistrada 1200 is 25 foot pounds in a 1-2-1 sequence, but in this Monster I see only one screw and not 2. So the sequence 1-2-1 does not apply of course and I was wondering what is the new torque.

Call your Ducati dealer. They should be able to help you unless they are assholes.

Call Newport Ducati service- they have been super helpful and friendly giving the correct torque on bolts and answering questions. They will definitely be getting all my business in the future. and I live 2hrs away from there shop and purchased from another dealer.

and don't forget the fifty something millimeter star bit thing-a-mah-hoodle you need to loosen the pinch bolt. I just let my dealer do it. They are good people, charge a minimal amount and clean/lube the chain while they are at it.
