  • Belt alignment

    I tightened the belt to specs and now my belt rides to the right, brake side. Before I did the belt was in the center. My question is to bring the belt to the left would I tighten the right adjustment?
    thanks

    Make sure the alignment of the wheel is the same on both sides and don't worry about where the belt rides.

      Ok great. Alignment is perfect. Thanks Dave

    Don't trust the alignment marks on the swing arm, they are notoriously wrong. Measure from the center of the swing arm pivot to the center of the axle.

    Mine is slightly to the right on the rear pulley and slightly left on the front one but not against the flanges on either. The belt will move to the opposite side of whichever bolt gets tightened, loosing will send it to the same side

      Balancing act between belt location in pulley and proper belt tension. I always spend 15 or 20 mins fine tuning this and gets near centre but not always which is good for me.
