so i'm adjusting the belt tension on the 950 once again (long story), and i'm getting completely different tension on the same markings where it used to be at. so i was testing something out with the belt tension at about 3mm for a short period. then i loosened it back to the same markings i had it at before (at least i think) where it was at about 7mm. but this time the same position was giving me a tension of 15mm+. the only difference between now versus then was that i have applied some chain lube to my belt for lubrication. is it possible that the same markings/placement on the swingarms can give 2 very different amounts of tension, or am i just crazy because i was doing this at 4am this morning?

or belt is going soft and is tighter or looser depending on how its sitting on the pulleys....

At times like this I hold a hammer at eye level and open my hand
to see if the laws of physics have been repealed,
and I did not get the notice....
