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?
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.
Hi Steve. Yes I can help you. It says in the Harley factory service manual that drive pulley bolt is torqued to 79-83 ft/lbs.I realise that this is an old thread, however, I am half-way through replacing the dreaded bolt and realised I have no torque specifications for any of the bolts I have removed so far!
Does anyone on here know what the front pulley bolt tension is?

Good day,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.
