    Tensioner wheel not staying tight

    I have the belt tension tool and tighten my belt every time i go out and when i bring it back in after a day the tensioner wheel needs cranking again (about 4 more turns). my psi goes from 12 to about 10 after a long ride. belt doesnt wear that fast right??? i adjust tension then tighten tension wheel. i really reemed on it to see if it will hold better. we'll see tom. anyone else have the belt loosen so quickly??

    You dont want it over tight, it will take its toll on the bearings on the tension pulley and the bearings on the supercharger snout...............

    no no,.. not reeming down on the adjuster screw. reeming down the bolt that holds the tensioner wheel in place. I feel its sliding. HA. reeming on the belt would be a RED flag tho. thanks for the concern

    to verify if the tensioner is slipping

    I suggest mark the bracket with a marker , So next time if it happens you can be sure ,if it did indeed slip as the marks will no longer line up.
