Yes, put the bike on a stand to get the rear wheel off the ground. Loosen the 22mm axle nut and then adjust the belt tension/alignment with the small 12mm nuts on both sides of the swing-arm. Adjust in 1/4 turn increments equally on both sides as it doesn't take much. What I found helpful is to spin the wheel and watch the belt from behind. You want to see the belt ride in the middle of the rear pulley...not hugging the left or right side too much as it will squeak. It can be tricky finding the right combination of both belt tension and alignment. Just be patient and don’t kick the bike over off the stand in a fit of rage! Once you've found the sweet spot torque the 22mm axle nut back to 110lb's BEFORE you snug the 12mm nuts a tad. Then put the rear end back on the ground. Take it for a spin and kill the bike at low speeds to listen for any belt noise or funny vibrations.dreadly said:Do I need to loosen both axle nuts to tighten the belt?
From reading I use the nuts on the end of the to tighten the belt, correct?
The axle slides in on the left side and the nut is on the exhaust side. I just tightened and loosed from the left side while holding the nut still with a large crescent wrench.dreadly said:Learned from doing my Raider ... all about finding the spot. lol
The axle nut being on the left side (if sitting on it) of the bike?
That is the 10 pound test gauge that you posted earlier in this thread.dreadly said:What is that?
