Re: RIOT Drive Belt
[quote=///AIRDAM;4635]the larger puly towards the right is the secondary. if you'l ignore the batteries in the background and notice on the TOP of the secndary in the picture, which is the face of the secondary when installed there is a yelowish nut. that nut has an allenhead set screw threaded into it. you put an allen wrench in the set screw, and use an 11mm wrench to back the nut off just a bit. then you can loosen the set screw up (turn it outward) in order to close the secondary sheaves up closer together, by the sheaves closing up closer together, it will allow the belt to ride higher in the secondary tightening up your belt.
Cool. I found it... but.. isn't there always a but or a butt in the way... I measured the belt ride highth and it is .134 which is already to high the manual calls for 0 - .125... so the question is ... how the heck does the belt stay a .125 or less and have only a 1' deflection?
Anyway, seems I had a small oil leak that was the cause of metal to metal brake pads... and the drive belt slip ... fixed the leak (well my mechanic with benefits did the fixin') new belt (as previously stated) and new brake pads... Cheers!!
