Yesterday morning I swung by the dealership to have them check mine because i heard a funny noise from it the night before.
They adjusted it immediately while the bike was still warm. This mechanic talked to me and explained a good way to check the tension by twisting the belt and explained it should take some effort to get it sideways but it should get there.
I will perform his test tonight when I am down in the garage on the bike cold and report back the comparison between yesterday just after the adjustment and the cold (sitting all day)bike.
