Or using a lift, you keep the rear wheel on the ground, pull the swingarm axle out, then raise the bike just high enough to create a gap to get the belt through. You still have to remove the T-case at the pulley housing and/or exhaust and peg if necessary but you don't have to mess with the suspension and just loosen the wheel.Thanks for info
I have that belt also AZ W I keep it in my bag for longer trips ,but never had to use it knock on wood.That seems like it's a pulley-tooth-killer.
Years ago I got this Emergency Drive Belt -
H.D. #40171-97 ('95-'99 USA Softail).
Never had to use it.
It seems like a pita solution but better than nothing. The instructions pdf is out there on the net. Maybe these are still made. Dunno.
HD dealers used to stock them.
