Thumbs up X-Charger Belt Slip Fixed

Redesigned the idler pulley bracket on my X-Charger SuperX TVS to run a third pulley for more belt wrap. No more belt slip! This will work on all X-Chargers, not just the TVS.

It looks like the middle pulley is barely even being touched!

If I still had my 2006 with the Xcharger I'd be going with this. Great belt wrap. Even with larger pulleys on mine I still had some belt slip because I could see the dusting on the face plate.

Good idea, but why not just downsize the belt?

Going to a shorter belt won't help with wrap on the supercharger pulley. So slippage could still happen. Plus a shorter belt would stress the idler arm pulley taking it out of optimal alignment and stressing the rest of the pulleyd

Ahh I see that angle that it comes off at is greater and wraps it tighter. What pulley did you use? Prob used the spacer for the original pulley that is under the other one?
