With the new belt mounted, i strapped a 2x4 to the bike with tie downs. Screwed the rear brake to the 2x4. Had my kids press the brake to hold the rear wheel still. Remove nut with socket and bar.

Re the scuff marks on the old belt, check your rear sprocket for squashed tarmac. Noticed i had quite a few in mine when i had the wheel out changing the tyre.

Perhaps the wedge shape of the wood block is significant in distributing the pressure across multiple points - In my posted picture, it looks like the bolt at the bottom (the one I think you snapped off) has a collar or spacer or is bolted through a support bracket, which may help to strengthen it from bending...

I wanted to make a more circular one but my sprocket is a little different if you compare the two pictures.

My buddy just bought a 1994 Suzuki DR125. When he brought it by for some work, I noticed someone had switched out the stock turn signals for Sportster versions!
