Belt tension

Recommended Posts

It's a feel thing, :D



I always go by feel (but there is a tension gauge you can buy). I find the longest straight span of belt and try to twist it. You should be able to get about 90 degrees...any less and it's too tight, any more and it's too loose.


I know, not highly scientific, but it works fer me :D

Thanks fellas. Going by how I used to judge the chain on my dirt bike (feel), I noticed it seemed super tight. I'll give it the ole twist test later today, but I already know the answer. Thanks again........ :cheers:



And C-Dub, to your opening comment, of course that goes by feel too :brows:
