Re:Front Drive Pully Nut Maint. 6 Years, 5 Months ago  
Your all welcome and anyone else who says thanks. I will edit some pics into this org post photobucket was slow tonight. I just wanted to get the info out there before anyone else had the problem.

Not really enough room for a wire. I was about to put an o ring into the threads after the nut, no room.

Lucky the white roller come out and off easy, the about fall out. No idea why they are even needed, I don't really think they are needed. But you can instal new ones easily or maybe clean those up and put some dry lube on them. I think they only really come in contact with the belt when something happens like........ you loose your nuts!

I think I will check with the people down at the shop on my new old stock '09 and listen to what they have to say about it, then probably check it this winter.

If the white rollers don't touch any thing. How can they be making any noise ? I thought I read on here some where that they were the sourse of the high pitched chirp sound that comes from that part of the bike. If it's not, what's making all the noise ?

Re:Front Drive Pulley Nut Maint. 6 Years, 5 Months ago  
You guys are too nice, I noticed I spelled Pulley wrong and had to come back and change it. The idea is that this comes up on a search. I think I also said bolt when I meant nut, and a few other things. Someone also mention they do not have the two washers that are like spacers for the long bolts at the rear. Really? Are they just missing on some or not put on some models? They go on between the plate and the frame on the rear bolts that are longest of the bunch. My book also says 61 fT Lbs and I read in another book someone else said 64. Which one? 3 Lbs won't matter much but it is in technical area.

Re:Front Drive Pulley Nut Maint. 6 Years, 5 Months ago  
I had this same thing to happen to my Bike 05 Road*. I kept hearing this noise From my belt, from the front pulley.
So, I went down to the Stealer, to have them look at it. Sure Nuff the damn Nut was loose, and there was NO WASHER !! They
fixed it up for me. I think I had about 7,000 miles when this happened!! I made a post about it back then..
Thanks!!

Wow, no kidding. That's it I've got to go see what's up. I don't like the sound of that.

How about drilling the nut & adding safety wire?
