Remove both shims and you should be good.

On a serious note, I got the new belt on but it has 50mm of deflection!.
I can almost pinch the belt together in the middle

Should I still remove shims even though its a Brand new OEM Kawasaki belt?
I got about 15hrs out of this last belt. The dealer installed it and I dont think they bothered checking deflection.

I would look for some debris some where stopping the secondary sheave from closing. There should never be that much deflection with a new belt

Should be easy to tell, the belt should be almost off the top of the secondary pulley
