    I just wanted to say thanks to all you guys that have helped us solve our problems with your posts, pictures, and videos.

    I have an old Mastiff that needed a drive belt, wasn't tracking straight, and had a slight inner primary leak. I figured I'd take care of it all at once.

    Long story short, it turned out to be the trans wasn't aligned properly (Shims) and the frame was out about a quarter of an inch front to back. Using the florescent light alignment method verses measuring from the swing arm helped me find the tweaks that were needed.

    Without all the posts on here I never would have thought to look for frame issues?


    Thanks again to all, ride safe...
