Thats what i thought, but heres what scares me. If thats true, then consider this. Triumph says to set the tension when the bike is COLD, and thier spec leaves the belt VERY tight. If it's that tight when cold and it gets a lot tighter when hot, well...think about it !

I checked it again today when cold and again it was loose. I will check it again when i get home from work and it's hot. If again it's tight, then how the he|| are we supposed to adjust it correctly? I mean, it was extremely tight and when hot was like triumph says it should be when cold. So if you adjusted it tight like that when cold as they say, it would be insanely tight when hot.
