So im half through an 1100 mile road trip and i noticed today that my right side axle adjuster nut is gone. The belt has moved side to side on the sprocket. Im riding a 900 btw. Can i ride without it? Theres no dealers near me ... any suggestions?

I tend to think that if the axel is tight it shouldn't hurt to ride without the adjuster nut. The axel shouldn't move and the adjuster can only be utilized if the axel is loose. Right? Am I missing something?

Lost one on my 800 couple years ago, just went to local hardware store and got a replacement. Unless really accelerating hard, the axle nut should hold wheel in place.
