Sorry this is the best picture I could take
I put on some new chrome upper/lower belt guards (thanks "norrak") and the upper guard isn't the same as the original guard (the nut isn't attached to the guard) so I bought a nut and put the guard on but the nut looks very close to the pulley. I didn't look how close the original guard was so I'm not sure but they might be the same. I'm guessing if I can turn the tire all the way round and the pulley doesn't rub on the nut (hehe rub on nut :D) I'm good to go, right?

Looks close. But looks like it clears. You can get a low profile M12 nut from Autozone and be done with it. Now that I think of it, that was pretty close too.

:them: ...and decided to take a look at mine since I also have the chrome belt guard. Looks like mins is just as close as yours but clears just fine. So you should be good to go. :)

I figured even the original guard had to be pretty close and as long as it cleared I should be all right, I just wanted a few others opinion to make me feel better about it :thumb:

That makes two jokes about rubbing nuts......think you need to spend more time away from the bike and find yourself a girl buddy!
