Stratoliner Deluxe Drive Belt and Rear Tire Replacement
« on: May 31, 2012, 06:19:36 PM »
    All Done! Questions,  Comments, and Tips are appreciated, and welcome
 
        I took over 110 photos of this process, will organize and post by this weekend!  It was actually a pleasure (except for the wallet).   This bike is a dream to work on, compared to the Vstar1100..   EASY PEASY!!   
 
 
   I did this with NO MANUAL!  I JUST DID IT MY WAY.  VERY DOOABLE.  I GIVE IT A 6 OUT OF 10, TOPS.  THE ONLY REASON IT RATES THAT HIGH, IS BEACAUSE YOU MIGHT NEED A HAND, AND I did it SOLO.

    First Thing I did was to remove the saddle bags, and store them in the back of my Cherokee for saftey.  Then I removed the Bag Skirting connector in the back (go ahead and take it all the way off), I eventually had to.

    If you see this in GREEN, its for the belt removal process, and you can skip for just the rear tire swap.    Here I just removed my drive pulley cover.

    Since this was my first time doing this proceedure, and I was just feeling my way thru this, I jotted down some measurements, (realizing some of these might change due to the new belt install).   This gave me a great idea of how much of a "tolerance" I had to play with from side to side with the original setup (tracking).    After this whole proceedure was done, I was with in .010 of an inch, of the original setup.

    This is the bolt that locks your tracking adjustment bolt into position, loosen it a little then you can release the adjusters tension, and the bracket (both sides of bike)
