Yep, and I am thinking that things were squared up real good about 1,000 mi. ago when I installed a new tire, I checked and double checked, I just thought I might try to very easily tweek it a bit and see if it centered up...
I will first guage the axle to swing arm distance and if it don't look like I could give it a slight tweek without getting it off, then I won't... And +1 on the not too tight belt...
Thanks, and have a good one...Tater...
