    Both. He replaced the pulley, and because it had slipped so much, the belt needed to be replaced too.

    Hmmm
    thanks for info.
    I was wondering as I had this issue,but my pulley looks brand new and the belt is brand new. I got away with just tightening mine though, or think ive gotten away with that, lol
    Time will tell long term, but that was maybe 500-1000 miles ago.

    always wanting to keep eyes open though just in case anything else pops up on this baby.

    thanks again

    Properly adjusted belts = less emptying of the wallet. Check them before each ride.
