With the tensioner pulley disconnected:

1 Get the belt around the front sprocket.
2 Bring the belt near the rear wheel sprocket
3 Connect and thread the rear axle rod
4 Get the belt around the rear wheel sprocket
5 Back the axle rod out juuust enough so that it is still threaded on the opposite side, but the wheel slides a cm down that angled groove.
6 Connect and tighten the idler pully/tensioner system.
7 Tighten the rear axle to spec.


Got my new belt, and it was physically impossible to get either the pulley on with the belt on the rear wheel, or impossible to get the belt on the rear wheel with the pulley tensioner connected. The rear axle will never go in properly with the new belt pulling the rear wheel, and you'll lift the bike off the ground before you push that tensioner into position with the belt installed on the rear wheel.

Feel free to add any other helpful hints on it. I'm posting this because I'm probably gonna forget in a few years and need this post when I search for it again.

You may have a belt for the 1125R, it is shorter than the 1125CR.

It sounds like you have a belt for the 1125R, it is shorter than the one for the 1125CR.

If so, I am in the market for a 1125R belt! PM me with a price if so...

I accidentally ordered the belt for the 1125R the first time, but I returned it and got the one for the 1125CR.

All the tea in China wouldn't get the 1125R belt around both the front sprocket and rear wheel sprocket at the same time - idler pulley installed or not. Not enough teeth.

So that wasn't the problem this time.
Maybe new belts are just super tight. It fits, you just have to fight for it.

Interesting. I put on a new belt recently (purchased as several years ago, so maybe there is a slight difference from a belt more recently manufactured?) and it wasn't too much of a struggle. I also let it sit in a very warm garage to help make it a bit more pliable. I had the hardest time getting the belt on the front sprocket as there is not much space in front of the front sprocket....

You have to rotate the front pulley to where the flat on the pulley is facing forward to be able to put the belt on. I put the front on, replace the tensioner and then install the wheel, that way the wheel starts on the flat section of the axle which is the loosest the belt can be when it is in place.

Even with the flat part towards the front, it was still rather difficult to get it on the front sprocket. Once the belt was on the front sprocket, the belt went onto the rear sprocket relatively easily...IIRC.

Agreed, that is how I remember it.
