Default 13 hammer 8 ball belt adjustment?

pulled off the big rear tire + wheel today to put my matching pirelli night dragon on a 240 that is. a 27 mm socket is needed or crudely a big adjustable wrench. the disc side adjuster would not fit the 13 mm socket, other side was good. i will massage the swingarm as it has a raised edge that i will remove so belt adjustment can be made. manual listed 15/64 at 10 lb for the belt on my 13 8 ball hammer with rear wheel elevated is that right? its easily 1" right now at 2,xxx miles. easiest rear wheel i ever removed!!! new table lift prolly had a lot to do with that!!!

Yeah man the belt is tight on the 8ball's because it sits lower and if the belt is loose, it will rub on the cover. My belt deflection is set at 7-8mm, I think the manual calls for 5-6mm?
