Hmm, my mistake! I stand corrected!, thanks for that reminder....I will be sure to hit the service manual as I am reassembling my 260 kit over the next month or so.....

thanks Arizona!

Here's something that wasn't known in the 'early days' so its a seemingly rare example of something to double-check if you read an older thread: these belts on new bikes were installed by the local delivering dealer not by the factory. It was and sorta still is stereotypical of us to say they are ALL delivered loose. Some delivering dealers actually did read Page 14 of the assembly manual and actually followed the steps. Some did not. Dealers and shops are more tuned-in today but still we all need to read every step because we cannot trust that any individual dealer or shop will set-up our belt correctly even after a tire change.
