    250x supercharger belt to short?

    Ok working on a 2008 ultra 250x for a buddy. His belt broke and we hopefully figured out why. One of the hoses going to the stator was ripped and we think it was spraying water on the belt causing it to get hot and break. But anyways we ordered a Oem belt, got the engine moved forward, installed the belt almost. We ran into a snag bc the belt seems to short and I donít have the original to go by bc it was shredded to pieces. The tensioner is not even installed and I canít get the belt to slip onto the crank pulley and sc pulley. It seems like itís about an inch short. Itís supposed to slip right over then the tensioner is supposed to take up the slack. Has anyone ever had this happen with a belt being to short? Last thing I want to do is remove the pita exhaust manifold again. At least this time all the bolts are brand new.
    any info is appreciated

    Well got the belt on. Was in the right direction. Was trying to put the belt on like a bicycle chain but just wasn’t going all the way with it. Using a screwdriver to turn the SC pulley helped. When I did a belt change on my personal 300x it wasn’t as hard. Guess the tolerance is closer with the two different SCs
