Timing Chain Wear

Is there a service limit on timing chain stretch for the new gen 250s? I couldn't find anything in the service manual, and digging through other forum thread mentioned only the pre gen service limits.

If there is, is there a way to check the chain stretch limits on the timing chain without splitting the case?

I'm still trying gather some data to track down a ticking engine noise on the right side. New CCT didn't solve the problem, valves are adjusted, cover bolts tightened in sequence and within torque specs. Ticking noise is not present when bike is cold, only when bike is warmed up.
