Well, FridayI took off around noon to see if I could replace that belt. I pulled the covers off the left side to access the front pully. I then examined how the belt ran and like CrazyJ indicated it looks like you have to remove the swingarm. I am going to check the manual but I do not recall seeing that step. "Romans5.8" you said you wiggled it off. Can you explain your process in little more detail please? I cleaned a lot of dirt that I normally could not get to plus found my footboard bracket and pin rusting. Did some painting and lubing. I was afraid to tackle the swingarm and causing issues I could not recover from and miss riding Saturday and Sunday. We rode into Cookeville, TN., spent the night and rode back to Louisville, Ky the next day. 450 mile round trip. Had a great time and traveled some nice roads. Another day to tackle replacing that belt. Oh, I noticed a plastic wedge shape piece in the top of the pulley cover. It looks like th belt has been rubbing on it because it looked worn. I am wondering if I should replace it and what its purpose is?
Thanks and have a great Tuesday the 13th.
