Question another belt tensioning question

Ok, so I re-tensioned my belts after 1500-2000 miles. I noticed that the belt seemed to 'ride' toward the inner edge of the cam pulley instead of in the center. Is there any reason to be concerned about this? I did actually loosen the belt a little on the re-tension. I used Bruces tool (920X) both times. A few times each actually .

Thanks, Dave

A too tight belt will track to the side. The tension pulley flange has to be on the engine side. The balance belt tension pulley flange goes on the outside. I left the top cover off one time and checked the timing belt when the engine was hot. Tight as a drum but was marginally loose when the engine was cold. The timing belt does not have to be as tight cold as some think.

When was the last time you changed your timing and balance belts and/or cam chain and tensioner?
