On the side stand I make sure there is enough chain slack to touch the swingarm midspan.
If you really want to get it right use a ratchet strap to pull down the rear suspension until the front sprocket shaft, swingarm pivot and rear axle are all in a line. This is the tightest point for the chain. Adjust so there is is a small amount of play at this point - it should NOT be drum tight. Then put bike back on side stand or main stand and measure / check slack somewhere you can consistently check easily and adjust to easily without a ruler.
