Harley-Davidson Softail® rear belt installation is a big procedure. Our experts install the seals and spacers on the main shaft. We install the main drive pulley and show proper torquing of the pulley. The drive belt goes back on and then the swing arm. We re-install the rear wheel, spacers and caliper.
