Heya Marc, 

Saw that you got several replies on the adjustment procedure but I too missed
the part that you didn't have the center stand.  I think to do the adjustment
properly you do need to get the bike up and weight off of the rear
wheel.  While I'm not 100% I believe you could get away with using a rear
paddock stand but not sure how that affects the chain geometry since the
bike's weight is still on the swingarm, etc.  Anyone?  Beuhler?

Oh and does the RS owners manual give any hints?  I'm  sure *someone* here
does this adjustment w/o a center stand.
