got her back together with the .075 inch milled off the outside of the cush. drive hub on the surface the studs screw into. The new to my bike in very good condition V star 1300 belt I put on surprised me in that it took even a li'l bit more of my adjustment to tighten it than the bike's original worn out belt. I had figured with the same number of teeth it would have been slightly shorter and not stretched at all.
I'm finding that as far as the tracking on the pulley is going, i'm now able to run with the rear axle nearly perfectly straight perpendicular to the swingarm and don't have near the problem keeping the belt from touching the outside rim of the front pulley that I did before(my belt adjusters are adjusted the same now).....However, what I'm noticing is that whenever I let off the throttle in any gear after about three quarters to 1 second after I let off....the belt has moved over towards the engine distinctly and at least one hundred fifty thousandths of an inch every time; and turning the throttle back on moves it back over towards the outside of the pulley. I can see that this action has an affect the same way on the REAR pulley only the belt is only moving side to side about a 1/3 as much on the rear pulley compared with the front. Don't know what to think of this other than maybe the back sides of the pulley teeth are worn at an angle ? Would that cause that? Or if the rubber side of the belt that has load on it when your decelerating was worn at an angle? I guess before making any conclusions or adjustments I should let this belt new to these sprockets run on them for say 750 miles and then reevaluate what it is doing. Gone is my problem of the belt jumping pulley teeth under load.
