Without having to loosen or remove the rear wheel !

Reprinted by Permission from Mr Tidy's Tech Tips

  1. Remove saddlebag if necessary and remove front saddlebag bolts and footpeg.  Place a cotton sock over the end of the saddlebag bracket to protect paint (or remove side cover). Remove the front bolt at the seat/fender/saddlebag bracket support and rotate the bracket up 3-4 inches. 

  2. Remove the upper chrome belt guard. You can then remove the plastic lower guard. 

  3. Put an old cotton T-shirt over the lower swing arm to protect both the paint and chrome. 

  4. Slide the new chrome lower guard in per Barons directions. (Slide rear of guard in angled down and then lower front edge in. Then rotate top of guard in under upper swing arm). 

  5. Reverse removal process for upper guard and saddlebags.  I replaced the supplied chrome bolts with stainless steel bolts.

Does anybody out there have information on how to replace the final drive belt on a 2005 Road Star Silverado? I need to change mine but would like to do it myself. Thanks

I was able to install the bottom guard without removing the top guard. I did remove the hard bag and bracket completly to make it easier. It sure beats messing with the tire!
