Building G/F kit from S.M.W. I centered rear tire with the backbone of frame and had the spacers cut ! Now my rear pulley & trans pulley do not line up. Trans pulley needs to come out 1/4 in.

Do you have a spacer on the REAR pulley? R u sure the rear tire is centered as best you can? Can you grind down your axle spacer a little without taking the rear wheel off a center too much? Might have to open up your tranny plate holes a little to bring it out if the other stuff dont work, but you want the rear pulley and tranny pulley squared up in the end, laterally. But before you do all that, make sure your motor is hooked up tight and square to your tranny! There is an order. I spent a little time on this too, but it was worth it. Call Randy, and theres lots of good info on GF's at this site.

Engine / Trans. & Primary back plate are tight & square with rear axel. I removed the rear spacers & lined up front & rear Pulleys W/ belt on & it is fine,belt tracks well & everything is square ! but now center of wheel is 1/4 to 3/8" off backbone to the left! I wasnt gonna sweat it untill i put on the rear fender on & noticed wheel is 1/8" away from inside left of fender while the right side has alot of space. Im pretty sure the wheel will rub internal fender support. I called S.M.W. & the girl said that i can put a 1/4" spacer behind trans. pulley ! does this sound right ??? I have an S&S 107"/BDL 3"OPEN & ULTIMA RSD TRANS .

I have a hyd actuator housing on mine, and it looks like the pulley would hit inside the actuator housing if I did that. Is your clutch activated by hyd or cable?

I'm using the same setup and the rear wheel is slightly off-set from center. It is only about 3/16" if that much. With a 300 rear tire and enough room under the fender, I did not see the need to off-set the trans pulley, but I suppose it is possible. Be careful to check belt clearance at the swingarm/frame mount point if you are adjusting the drive to the right.

re a line ?

It is cable activated.I pulled rear wheel off and noticed axel ends are different sizes(not much, only a little more than a 1/16 ! Think i will loosen up drivetrain & re a line again & see where that puts me.
