Help me with the chain!

i was lubing my chain the other day and it seemed a little loose, can somebody tell me how much slack i need to have on ex500 and do i measure it on the centerstand or with somebody on the bike? since there might be a difference. and maybe other chain adjustment things i would need to know to tighten it properly.

35 ~ 40 mm of slack or 1" ~1.5"

looking at the cache of EX500Riders.com that's what i found^

so 1" - 1.5" for chain slack.
