You're not looking at the long run. Doing that increases, unnecessarily, the tension on the chain. This leads to premature wear of the chain and the cam and crank sprockets as well as the guides. There's nothing wrong with it ticking a bit. Every chain driven DOHC sportbike makes a tick. Leave it alone.
Whether or on it should be done, IDK, and Idc.
But like goingtoscotland said they all do it, I love reading people saying its a kawasaki thing lol. They all do it. I choose to use a manual tensioner. Everyone else do what you like.
