Default 96 XLT With reverse Chain Tension ??

Evening guys,new to posting on forum but have used a tremendous amount of your posts to refurbish a pair of 95/96 XLT specials with extra 12 suspension so thank you in advance.
The 95 has reverse and the 96 did not, due to back issues I needed reverse in both. Bought a good used reverse kit and swapped into the 96, boy did I learn about Polaris Indyís! So my question is reverse chain tension. Manual says 20 inch pounds and back off 1/2 turn but this seems extremely tight. Older posts Iíve read guys are saying hand tight with tension bolt and then back off 1/4 turn but with a reverse chain this seems too loose. Reverse is all in was a considerable amount of time and money to put this in so I donít want to ruin something first trip out. Thanks for your help
