I did it.

Is it necessary, probably not.  It did make the bike slightly quieter but the aluminum skid plate made it much louder anyway.

Also it seems difficult to set properly.  I installed it while I did a valve check so I could visually check it.  Then after starting the bike up I re adjusted it.  The sound difference is slight, to me anyway, from loose to correctly tensioned.
