07 Victory Hammer Belt Resonance
When i first bought my bike 4 months ago I ordered a tension gauge and adjusted it to about a half inch deflection @ 10 lbs. Well since then I took off the lowering kit the bike had and also added alot of preload to the bike. This more than likely raised the bike to about 1" higher than stock. I did this to be able to have a little more fun around the turns. The other day i wanted to re adjust the belt tension per manual. When i set it at 15/32" like it says (For an 06 Hammer unless they changed it in 07) It felt extremely tight and had a really bad vibration hitting bumps, turning etc so i turned around and loosened it up a bit. That vibration went away, now i just have a resonance before coming to a stop around 5-10mph. Yes I had the bike lifted and yes it was cold with the original adjustment i set it at. I believe it has something to do with the geometry of the bike being raised up. I am guessing if i went and checked the tension would be about 3/4." Has anyone ran into this? I have also felt the belt on the ride side while stopped with my girlfriend on the back to see how it feels. Still seems to be just a little more tight than it should. Any recommendations would be appreciated.
