    Wife just purchased this bike and I have been going through it, checking all the adjustments etc. but am confused on the belt tension. I only have a 1999 FSM which lists the deflection for ALL models as being 9/16 - 11/16" cold on jiffy stand. I'm sure that this bike has the shorter rear shocks as standard and therefore should have less deflection. Can anyone help?
