I find the best way to adjust the chain is to get a steel ruler and measure from the movable alloy block that the rear spindle runs through to the end of the swinging arm, then do the same the other side.

Adjust the adjuster bolts equally (I do two or three bolt head flats at a time) ensuring that both measurements are the same.

With regards to span adjuster clutch levers, you can get these. I will find out a price for you and let you know.

Handling is exceptional if the suspension is set up correctly. I like Dunlops and also run on Qualifiers with no problems (I'm an X racer). Check tyre pressures are ok an that the suspension settings are standard (good for an 85kg rider). If these are not good enough for you, make one adjustment at a time to either the front or rear and make a note of the effect until you reach a compromise.

Hope this helps.

I suggest to use the Laser CAT (Chain Adjustment Tool). With this fine tool (price in germany around 50Euro), you can keep your chain in line properly. Easy to use.

Best way I've found, is to Align The Wheels Properly then take note of the adjusting bolt flat positions. Any future chain adjustment is done 1 flat on the left, then one on the right, check the tension, then repeat 1 left 1 right, until done.
When you fit a new chain, or stuff up the synchronisation b/w left & right, re-align the wheels & start again.
