The drive belt teeth fell off exactly at 50000k,vibration,clunking no power.
My mate oska rode on his yammy roadliner and returned with my spare belt and as the light faded in sprinkles of rain i got her going.
You must have the female torx and correct extensions on you to do the adjusters.
BUT,under the actual metal cover of the drive sprocket screws were the little plastic washers which were very difficult to get in there and in the end they didnt.
does anyone know what they do or if they are necessary.
there are metal flatwashers under the heads of the nuts.
thanks peter

check on realoem.com as to where they fit. i'd suspect its probably for spacing, and potentially some vibration damping.
