I would guess that installing a manual chain adjuster is not recommended "right away" is to let the chain have it's initial stretch. The stock hydraulic adjuster will take up the little bit of slack as it occurs, but a manual adjuster will not.

Edit - I see that the DT tensioner is *not* a manual tensioner. Now, I have no idea why they recommend waiting...unless it may exert too much force on the new chain?
Street bikes for the street. Dirt bikes for the dirt. Let's keep it that way.
