That's right, and use the same measuring reference point on the chain when pulled up and down... in the illustration it's the bottom of a link but it won't matter... you could use the top of a link or the center of a roller pin.

Needless to say, with the bike on the side stand, you must have the bike in neutral so you are pulling out the slack in the top by turning the drive sprocket.
