when the belt is loose you lose tranfer power and also there is the posibility of loosing your belt during a crash for example.... but when its too tight you again lose transfer power and put extra amount of stress on the belt with no reason.

To start with i would do what ever the manual says providing it's not too loose or tight but over time your belt will stretch so you will probably have to add a little tension down the line or buy a new belt
