I'm going to throw a monkey wrench into these works with this...........
When hot, my belt would get guitar string tight even though I adjusted exactly to spec with a belt gauge. Got to chatting about it with MBX, whom I consider quite the Vic guru and he said loosen it until there's some slack in it when hot. Makes sense to me and I think the belt and bearings are now a lot happier. Too simple.
Yeah keep it simple.
Bike parked on stand is easy.
Poke up with your finger midway along the lower run of your belt.
If bikes cold youll have more slack, about an inch.
After a decent ride to get everything hot try poking it again and youll find its tightened up considerably but should still have some 'give' in it as you push up.
If it hasnt then its too tight and too tight is no good at all.
Better a bit loose than too tight.
After the initial break in then it should stay the same and not need to be messed with.
Dont let the place that changes your tyres mess with adjustment at all.
No need to.
Just keep it simple....
Even so I still give my belt an occasional poke just to check, Im a bit OCD that way.
Same goes for clutch freeplay too.
And I cant walk past a MIG, Oxy, or LPG bottle without checking that the tap is securely Off.
Easy to check. Keep it Simple.
