Loosened my belt.

So my belt from the factory was banjo tight. I have about 250 miles now and had the time to loosen it yesterday. I got so you can twist it about 30 degrees with light pressure, 45 degrees seemed pretty loose.

But, the R2D2 noises are gone and now it sounds like a motorcycle. Factory tight is too tight.

Agreed. I had the Kawasaki dealer install my Scootworks pulley about 15,000 miles ago. They put it on too tight according to my mechanic. He installed the Baron front pulley and a new belt, adjusted it to the proper tension. Bike runs great now.
