how much perload do yall put on you tensioner i'm installing the bc stg 3 and with a couple of clicks on the hybrid racing tct and the chain still slaps but when i pry on the guide to get more clicks to the point the tct doesnt have anymore movement the chain doesnt slap anymore does that sound correct? and is that safe on the guides and tct to have it so tight?
