TO change final drve belt on 99 FXSTC does the swing arm need to come out? HD shop manual says no but clymer manuals says yes. Which is correct? Looking to go to 150 tire in back of 99 FXSTC. All advice points to buying a late model pully, spacer and a narrow belt. Seems like pulling a swing arm is a lot of work though? Anybody done a belt swap on a 99?

Well, the swingarm bolt does need to be removed. So if you can squeeze the belt between the frame and the swingarm, it can be done. You should be careful not to twist the belt too much. Some new belts were known to break cause they were wrapped too tight and bent on the shelf. HOWEVER, since the bolt is out, drop the swingarm a bit and do it.
