Wrench Help with Belt Deflection/Clutch Adjustment

It's my understanding that when a belt is replaced that the belt deflection should be checked/adjusted if necessary. I've gone thru the service manual several times and am unable to locate any information about this subject. Guess I'm either blind or stupid. Any help is appreciated.
In addition, what about clutch adjustment? Is this a DEALER $$$ ONLY adjustment or can a shadetree mech do it?

Re: Help with Belt Deflection/Clutch Adjustment

Are you looking in the little service manual that came with the rzr or the mechanics service manual that you have to purchase through Polaris?

Re: Help with Belt Deflection/Clutch Adjustment

Blackbart,
As far as I know you can't do much with the pully alignment and belt deflection as the engine and trans are solid mounted to each other. It is adjustable on the Ranger. Thats why they have belt issues.
