Default Is this normal? (pic included)

My belt always rides on the right side of the rear sprocket. Is this normal? I have tried many times through adjustments to get it to ride down the center but never does. Always to the right.

That's where mine has been since day 1. Dunno if it's normal or not but I get no belt squeal and it doesn't appear to be causing any abnormal wear.

As the manual says. Looking from the rear of the bike. Bike on a stand and rear wheel off the ground.

Adjust the belt's tension spinning the wheel backwards. At the correct tension the belt should be touching the outside of the rear drive sprocket.

The last adjustment you make is to roll the wheel in a forward direction and tighten the left adjuster until the belt just starts to move towards the left and off the hard side of the sprocket.

If you check the sides of the belt you'll see if it's shinny and rubbing. Also your back rim will be covered in rubber dust.

That's my understanding.

I love the smell of Freedom in the morning... smells... smells like... Victory!

My KP is the same way. I have wasted countless hours trying to get it centered and it was a lost cause. I went to the dealer after my attempt and they were all off to one side or the other. That's when I decided to call it good. It doesn't squeak so I will leave well enough alone.
