Default Belt Deflection


Got question bout final drive belt tension on 08 hammer. Owner's manual says after 500 mi belt deflection should be 6mm and Service manual says 12mm.

Anyone know which is correct?

Appreciate any info...thanks y'all

2008, Steel Gray, Hammer

on a Hammer 8 ball the book says 6.0mm + or - .5 mm
on a Hammer S the book says 12.0mm + or - .5mm

So what model do you have? It has to do with the size of the rear tire(wheel) as to how you set the tension on the belt..
