If I remember correctly, the owners manual specs a range of 1 3/16 - 1 9/16. 1 3/8 is what's on the chain guard and puts you right in the middle. Don't think you're too tight at 1 1/4 but you're definitely on the tight end of the window.
It's a fool who looks for logic in the chambers of the human heart.
