Default Does tire replacement equal belt adjustment?

When the CCT has its tires changed, does the dealership have to adjust the belt?

Definitly not....as long as they know what they're doing the belt adjustment stays untouched.
Quiz em on it before you let em touch your bike.

When the tire gets changed doesn't the belt have to come off anyway? If so then it needs to be readjusted.

I'm not a 100% sure on a CCT but I know on my Vision there's no need to touch the adjusters when pulling the rear wheel-as long as it was adjusted correctly to begin with you should be good.

I took a look at CCT service manual and in the tire removal section it says: NOTE: Axle adjuster nuts do not have to be loosened or removed, however, belt tension & alignment must be inspected after assembly.

As above spider, you can drop the belt just leave the adjusters be.
That way adjustment stays same when it all goes back together.

The manual says that is when you check belt tension with tire replacement so it may or may not. On my 4th rear tire and I haven't needed to readjust after the first one was replaced. I remove the 2 bolts for the rear shock/bar and drop the rear that way. You don't have to remove the mufflers and the adjusters stay the way they were.

so every one gave you the correct answer. Now you have to talk to dealer and the service manager will give you a answer BUT its up to tech he's the one you should talk to

I disagree, its your bike, its up to you if you wanna let incompetents work on your bike.
I can check my adjustment any time I like by poking it with my finger.
Done 60,000 miles and 9 tyre changes without a drama,
According to the 'manual' I should be on my third belt by now and I'm still on the original thats had a hole in it for half that mileage.
Its your choice who works on yr bike.
Choose wisely.

I've replaced my tires twice and never touched the adjusters. Just because you can does not mean you need to.
