Nope, none. Never heard of that issue before. Maybe someone should start an oil thread too.

OK, sarcasm spent. There are literally dozens of threads on this board for this exact issue, so no need to start another one. Here's a link to a search list that with a little reading you will find your answers.

Yup, takes a few tries. The threads here are helpful. Be sure to only follow 111 belt drive advice, the Scout bikes are reversed because the belt is on the other side.

you can go to the motherships web site and they tell you (via video) how to adjust the rear axle to get your belt to run true... basically after you adjust for tension you go to the left side and adjust with it only until the belt is centered... then you check it by rotating the wheel to see if it stays centered... if it doesn't you start over and repeat until it does.. if it does you tighten things up and your good to go

Another tip is brake the axle but loose before you lift the bike so your extension will clear your muffler. When your done you will have to lower it down for final torque.
