Also, Indy can stand for "a town that has lost it's 4 time MVP and Hall of Fame quarterback plus several of the receiver corp and probably the center".

Why would you want to replace it if its a good belt? I am not happy because mine is split and I am forced to replace it.

Not sure if they made the right decision or not. Only time will tell and I think it'll be quite a while before we know..

I changed the belt on my RKC. I hurt it towing a heavy trailer to Sturgis in 10, not too bad to do. If you're handy with tools and like doing that kind of stuff.. Good Luck

Simpler if you are only changing the chain, but if you are changing the front sprocket you still must remove the primary, and it is even a dirtier job with a chain.

But with a chain you get more practice because you do it more often.

I blew my belt at 35k.....

First Belt Change - 6 hours - Second time 2 hours - look up my threads

All In Service Manual

1.) Remove Mufflers yes both

2.) Remove Rear Tire

3.) Remove Outer and Inner Primary's - Make sure you have a 150 pound
Torque wrench - to remove
Compensator / Stator nut

4.) Put small Jack under Tranny for Support - it's going to drop if ya don't

5.) Remove "Rear Fork" Swing Arm Bolt - listed as Rear Fork in Service
Manual it's a swing arm

6.) Remove Swing Arm - sorry Harley - Rear Fork

Replace: Belt , ALL Inner Primary Bolts/Seals - Gaskets , Replace Inner
Primary Bearing $ 30 these go out all the time, check Stator

NOTES: Use Blue lock tight on ALL nuts / Bolts - Torque to spec all bolts..
Compensator Nut - Install at 70ft.pounds trq. back off ,
tighten xxx Ft.pound trq. AS IN THE SERVICE MANUAL

Good time to consider:
SE Compensator , a better Stator while in there, Replace Fork / Swing Arms Bushings http://www.sta-bo.com/id2.html

Could have been a 1 person job, but a GF with a beer and a confident smile, "...I know you can do it honey,," helps a lot

Did mine by myself. The hardest part was getting the swing arm and bushings in with out another set of hands. To be on the safe side plan on a full day and take your time.

Can't tell you how many times I've looked at my tool - and skill! - set with the same resignation.

I also weigh out that even if I can eventually do a job myself - over 14 weekends! - is it really worth the down time?

Ride safe,
Murph
