Chain Installation

I am installing a new RK XW-Ring chain on my Ducati. I have a rivet tool. I am wondering how much flare I need on the master link pins. The tool instructions suggest between .006" to .028" depending upon chain manufacturer recommendations. The chain I bought does not have that info in the instructions, what recommendations do the great gurus of BCSB have?

Even just a tiny bit of pinning is sufficient. If you can see that it has indeed flared, you're golden.
