victory vegas drive belt issue. about 1/8" from frame??
Hi guys, I have a 2004 victory vegas. I had installed new wheels and the hubs seem to be the same as the original and the wheel was snug getting it in with the wheel spacers so I don't think that is the issue. The question is, with the belt running true in the center of the rear pulley, the belt is extremely close to the framewhere the back tube comes down. It's actually probably smaller that a 1/8" gap. The belt is running on the inside of the engine pulley, so there is probably 7/16" room to move it over to the outside and get the belt away from the frame. This is all with the bike sitting on the ground with no one on it. I'm not sure how much it will change to have weight but it seems like it shouldn'tbe that close. I was going to get some steel spacers roughly 3/16" and put them between the rear hub and pulley to space the pulley out more to get more distance from the frame
Has anybody had to move the pulley out a little bit before? Do you think the spacers will be safe? I don't see why they wouldn't be, but II'm curious as to why it is like this in the first place. Any help is appreciated, thanks.
