Hey guys and girls...

I have a kind of rubbing coming from my bike at really slow speeds (like 20km/h and less). It seems that it is coming from the drive train and not the brakes. It seems to have shown up after I did a belt tension adjustment but it could just be a coincedence. According to my belt tension gauge, the belt tension is right where it needs to be. Any thought? My local shop can't get me in until the end of the month, and there may be SNOW on the ground by then!

If you just did a belt adjustment, I'd start by checking to make sure the wheel is straight. Measure from swingarm bolt to axle bolt on both sides, or straight edge the pullies.

Your belt is probably rubbing on the outside edge of the pully. Loosen it off and move the belt more towards the centre. I had the same issue.

So the belt looked to be riding the outside of the pulley a little. Adjusted this and measures to the axle bolts. Hope to get a chance to ride it tomorrow to tes it out. Thanks for the help guys. I'll let you know how it goes.

Lay a straight edge of some type along side the pulley. The distance along the belt should be equal.
