Periodic Maintenance Procedures
Decide the belt deflection at the position [C] of one where
deflection is large.
Drive Belt Deflection (with 45 N, 4.6 kgf, 10 lb force)
Drive Belt Deflection (with 45 N, 4.6 kgf, 10 lb force,
when installing new belt or engine remounted)
If the deflection is out of the specification, adjust it.

Muffler (see Muffler Removal in the Engine Top End
Remove the axle cotter pin, and loosen the axle nut.
Using the jack under the frame pipe ribs, lift the rear
wheel off the ground (see Rear Wheel Removal in the
Loosen the left and right belt adjuster locknuts [A].
If the belt is too tight, back out the left and right belt ad-

To keep the belt and wheel aligned, the notch on the left
belt adjuster should align with the same swingarm mark
[C] that the right belt adjuster notch aligns with.
Tighten both belt adjuster locknuts.
Misalignment of the wheel will result in abnormal
wear, and may result in an unsafe riding condition.
Tighten both belt adjuster locknuts, and make sure
the axle stays aligned.
Tighten the axle nut.
