Hello; this is something that I have always had been having; no matter pre unit or unit. I use DID final chains. Is that the chains last not so many kilometers? I do not think that would be a problem of the pinions due to in several cases I used new ones and new chain and this problem started somewhat soon.
With 530 and 520 chains.

Are your situation similar?

Where are you getting that 1/2" information from?

T140 manuals and riders handbooks say 3/4" free movement with the machine "on its wheels" and the chain at its tightest point, or, 1 3/4" with the machine "on the stand" and the chain at its slackest point.

I use two DID chains and get good wear out them, lubrication is critical, the old chain gets 6 cleans in paraffin/ kerosene, then boiled in chain lube,
the spray on stuff turns into grinding paste.
