Belt should not have that much tension on it.
Perhaps my description of the process was not 100% clear.
Remove nothing other than the 5 retaining bolts for the pulley itself. This will still allow the pulley to reside on the centering flange on the wheel hub. At that point, with bike in neutral, you should be able to turn pulley, belt and front pulley. You then stop turning when "spokes" (the decorative cutouts in the wheel) in the wheel are in alignment with "spokes" on the pulley. Then reinstall the 5 retaining bolts with red loctite and torque back to spec.
Does that make sense??
