I have read the workshop manual, looked at the parts manual, spoken to friends ... result - this simple job on any other bike seems to be a pain in the arse, you have to spread the frame and need at least 2 of you.

Anyone here done this many times and got it down pat? I would appreciate any advice you can give.

Thanks

Don't spread the frame.

Hello & welcome, don't be shy, you can tell us where in UK you are!

As Adam says, you need to be getting to know Maz :maz: , if you don't already. 8-)

lOl ......it is impossible to spread the frame.

Whereabouts are you located Mr.Bricks ?........would be really helpful if peeps included this in their profile, rather than just putting UK etc. :idea:

Thanks for all the comments.
The bike is in wiltshire, near marlborough.
Funnily enough when the belt went I got it recovered by the RAC and the driver has 2 buells [1 S1 m 1 later - you on here?]
My understanding was that harley came out with a tool to open up the frame - which was crap anyway - though I was assured the frame springs back.
Anyway -if I dont have to do that it sounds better already -

You're never far from help with UKBEG, but that puts you fairly close to Pash ......

I am no S1 belt expert (although I have changed one and it was a PITA)

If you look at the frame in that area for more than 2 seconds, you'll understand what Maz says.
