pullyes

Should the front pulley outside surface line up with the rear pulley outside surface. I put a straight edge on the front and my rear is about 1/8" + to the right. Not a lot but doesn't seem right. Any thoughts?

I always try to get them to line up, but the front pulley is wide enough with a setup like yours that the entire width of the belt is still all on the pulley. You do want the outside edges of the pulleys to be parallel to each other. Jack up the bike with the transmission in neutral, spin the wheel frontwards and backwards to make sure the belt does not ride to far inside and rub the fuel tank. Also I’ve found it best to adjust the rear wheel alignment to keep the belt from riding up against either side of the rear pulley, try to get the belt riding with equal space on each side in the rear pulley.

Belt must lightly track the outer edge of the rear sprocket and the front is what it is. It's a floater for belt position based on the rear. If the belt is allowed to track the inside, two bad things can happen. The inner flange can break off or fuel tank can get a hole rubbed in it. Tension is also important to keep belt alignment.
