Funny, I was just setting my belt tension last night, for the Cross Country the spec is 1 1/4" of deflection under 10 lbs of pressure. After 4000 miles mine was at 1 1/2" of deflection. Like an earlier post getting the belt to track in the center of the sprocket was a matter of pushing the belt too far to the right and once the axle was tightened the belt moves to the center of the sprocket, took a bit but you can get it.
My frustration was how to get the torque wrench on the axle nut, the exhaust just doesn't give you enough room for a socket and wrench, I had to use the box wrench and guessed at the torque, about one grunt.
I was surprised at how much dirt was packed onto the sprocket already. I used a thin piece of hardwood to scrape the sprocket teeth clean.
