Looking for advice, I just purchased a 10 lb belt tensioning device (spring loaded) and tensioned the belt like the manual suggests, Place the bike on a center stand and allowed the rear wheel to hang, adjusted the belt to where it had between .285-.350 deflection, about the width of the belt.
It feels tight, am I missing something? or is it supposed to feel that tight.

Thanks

Sounds about right. I had to look up .285-.350 though - who the h*ll uses measurements like these any more?! Around 7-9mm is right - yep, it seems tight.

Re. alignment - I went to the national motorcycle show again today, and picked up one of these for belt alignment - intrigued to see if it’s better than my current laser pointing tool.
