  • 2004 Belt assistance

    Looking for some help regarding getting my belt back on. My front pulley nut came off and is gone. Ordered a new one. Luckily everything looks ok, but I can't seem to get the belt on the pulley since there isn't enough slack in the belt. Is there an easier way than removing the back tire? Any recommendations welcomed.

    Loosen the back tire, I mean just loosen the brake caliper mount with 1 17mm bolt, then loosen the axle. Don't touch the adjusters. Then slide the wheel forward an inch or two. Put the belt on then slide wheel back against the adjusters and tighten the axle, then tighten the brake caliper mount. Done.

      Ok so I was able to get the belt back on successfully, thanks for the info. Now I have a new problem. I need to know which way the pulley nut is supposed to go on. It has a recessed side that appears to go over the spline, but I can't seem to get it to tighten that way. Seems like there isn't enough room to fully catch with the washer being there. Worried that the threads are stripped.

    Hey, just noticed you handle. Are you a bowler?

      I was. Haven’t bowled in 8 years or so. Had several 300 games and 800 series in my day

      I tried that WII thing, figured I was a pretty good bowler that would be a cinch, not so. And it made me sore.

    Oh. A correction is the bolt holding the brake caliper mount is 15mm not 17mm. Just checked
