Default Is front pulley issue a factor on 06 model? (Threads Merged)

Hi guys, new here (see my intro on welcoming mat) and my first question....of course about the often discussed front pulley issue. I have a 2006 Midnite Warrior with 20,000 kilometers on the dial. I have gathered from posts here that the issue was a big one with pre 2006 models. I cannot find much info about this issue on 2006 and up models. I did find out here that the 2006 models and up received a new middle shaft and new type of locking nut. I would like to know if the issue was fixed by these changes in the 2006 models and up or are there still issues regarding the pulley getting loose? Your help and info/feedback would be very much appreciated. Thanks

Ps. Are there any other common issues and problems that I should be aware of?

I had an 06 that I put 25,000 miles on.
Never had a problem with the loose front pully nut.
The only problem that I had with the 06 was the mounting tab for the upper belt guard wasn`t welded on properly and came loose.
Yamaha replaced the swing arm under warranty.

I would consider checking the nut part of routine maintenance. It is not necessarily a huge problem or hard work but it is something that could come loose.

I second that! I was not including that in my PM and it wound up taking my bike off the road for a couple weeks while I replaced the middle shaft and front pulley. Based on recommendations here on the forum, I also increased the recommended torque on the pulley nut too. It takes 5min to check and saves a ton of time, money and hassle down the road.

Was that on a 2006 model that your nut came loose?

I have an 06 and mine came loose wound up having to rebuild the entire middle Drive.

Even if yours is not lose I would put some red loctite on it Torque to a hundred foot pounds.

OP consider it an extra 4 minutes of preventative maintenance.

I have two of 06 bikes. Had this problem on both. Tryed 100Nm with blue loctite and old nut - almost loosed.



Then tryed red loctite and 135Nm - loosed, but less.



On second bike from factory:



Then I used 180Nm and red loctite....



After 6000km it almost LOOSED but very slow...



Planing check again tomorrow)))

And.... I think that new nuts has thinner area to fix
