Welcome from Atlantic Canada. Try posting your question in the appropriate tech forum. Not everyone reads the new introduction posts and you'll probably get more responses there.

I don't have a belt drive either but I've read on here that the tension Yamaha recommends is too tight. There have been discussions about it here but I don't have a link to any of them. I'm sure someone will chime in with it though.

Welcome! I agree with what’s been previously stated. I own a 950 that’s belt driven and I’d start there as well. Posting in the Vstar section will give you more exposure and get more feedback.
