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.
Just came up from the garage and checked the belt
It dosent seem to be any different cold than it was after they adjusted it on fri morning.
