Drive belt change
« on: September 24, 2018, 02:14:22 AM »

When replacing sprocket drive belt of CVO (110 - 2018 year), besides belt itself and primary gasket, is there any other parts to be considered?

When you replace the belt you should always closely inspect the sprockets for wear and damage, and replace them if necessary.  Installing a new belt on seriously worn or damaged sprockets will usually result in early failure of the new belt.  See attachment.

Things you should change,
Primary to motor gasket,  5 primary fasteners if you don't use new fasteners it's  highly possible you'll have a primary fluid leak, it's also a good idea to change the inner primary case to transmission shaft seal, check the inner case bearing and inner bearing  race on the transmission output shaft for wear and pitting on the bearing rollers and inner race on shaft  (for what it's worth change them as it's all off) the three are a  small cost.

You also want to replace the compensator bolt.

Do you know if it is possible to change the belt without opening the primary case on the touring bikes?

Not possible.  Primary needs to come off.

You might not have to remove the swing arm all the way. Might be able to slide the pivot shaft back and drop the swing arm on one side just enough to slip the belt in.

The originator of this thread hasn't posted in this thread since 9/24/2018.  Did we scare him away?

I'd be hesitant to do this unless I knew all the parts are in good shape. I'd want to inspect the bearings, rubber mounts, the shaft and the inner and outer spacers for wear. If you've gone through this much trouble might as well look things over. Posting comments here is equally beneficial to the other readers who might be contemplating a drive belt change, not just for the person who started the thread.
