Any more info available on the tool needed to hold the pulley whilst torquing the bolt? I assume bike being in 1st gear and rear brake applied isn’t sufficient?

ok that’s good to know, thanks! Did you go for this $100 ARP bolt, or just a higher grade generic one?

So is this a common issue? Just bought my 500 and have a bit over 1000 miles. Should I check the torque on this bolt now?

What is the size of the socket to be used for the bolt? Is it a specialty socket as well? Thanks

I belong to a facebook group for the streets, and this problem is turning into an epidemic, most people are using ARP 156-2501 bolt as,a replacement american racing products, it is originally for a ford 4.6l but is exact size for our streets, ironically mine snapped after getting new tires at the dezlership as well....i almost thinknits time for a class action lawsuit, well over 20 people that i know of have had this happen . 4 hours labor is spalling as well ,drop the tore loosen up swing arm bolt install belt push swingarm bolt back in place. Torq done.new belt is 178.00 dollars.

So I just bought the bolt(ARP-156-2501), is it a simple matter of removing the existing bolt and installing the new bolt to torque specification? Or is there something unique about the installation that I need or should know?

Hey guys I know I got rid of mine, but I had opened a formal complaint when mine broke the second time. I just got a response. Andrew, if you happen to have contact information for anyone else this has happened to I'd LOVE to get their information. The NHTSA is doing the investigation on this matter. I agree, a class action lawsuit is reasonable, and I went through this twice, and this really made me question the safety aspect of the street series, not to mention Harley. Belts got tore up both times, guards destroyed, labor, time, tow costs, and this was my main source of transportation, so lost work time both rounds.

Also, that piss poor excuse of "humidity" really burns me the hardest. I'm not exactly thrilled. I loved my 750, it was set up the way I wanted and had a lot of money invested into it. But more so, yes I know its a motorcycle, but my safety was more important.

Anyway, anyone who wants to submit please get back to me. If you private message it will show up in my email so I can give that to the investigation team as well.

I've had a couple of emails about this, if this happens or has happened to you, PLEASE grab photos. If you did, post them here. I want the street series fixed for future owners as well as current owners. Oddly enough as of less then 2 weeks ago my (now traded in) 750 is STILL at the same dealership unsold. It's a shame really, was a great bike, apart of course from the pulley snaps and the multiple rear brake caliper problems.
