I need to make use of my bike tonight ASAP. Unfortunately, the chain is too loose (2 inches of play) and my stand won't arrive until next week. Would it be a problem to tighten it on the side stand for now?

Its not problem at all. Also, 2 in of play is not a big deal. A chain has to be very, very loose ot ever cause issues. I've not see yours, but I wont tighten mine to where there is any less than 1.5 in of play at its tightest point.

Why would it be a problem? As far as I know, on the side stand is the preferred method.
Agree with this. I've always tightened my chain on every bike I've ever owned while it was on the side stand.
