    Installed a new drive belt on my 2003 Bull Dog with right side drive, how much tension should I have? And what is the proper way to check the tension? Thanks, Anthony

    I can check my manual but if my memory serves me correct it’s a 1/2” play. Like I said going off memory :(
    Check out you tube allot of videos covering it , they sell a tensioner and you can get it through almost any hd dealership and it’s fairly cheap. I have even used a ruler while pushing on the belt to check play

    You can probably use the same method as the softail harley belt tension adjustment if you cant find the big dog adjustment procedure on here. 2 members ( Broadband and bdm7250) have posted links to most manuals.
