So has anyone wanted, or better yet, needed to adjust the tension on their belt? What was the procedure, what tools were required, what exactly did you do?

Anyone care to share a step by step description of how it is done?

Periodic Maintenance Procedures
Converter Drive Belt Deflection Adjustment •Disassemble the driven pulley (see Driven Pulley Disassembly
in the Converter System chapter).
If the belt deflection ismore than 27mm(1.06 in.), remove
the spacers to decrease it.
○The rule-of-thumb is: 0.1mm(0.004 in.) change in spacer
thickness equals about 1.3 mm (0.051 in.) change in belt
deflection.
If the adjustment cannot be done within the specified
range even if the shim is removed, replace the drive belt.
If the belt deflection is less than 22 mm (0.87 in.), add the
spacers [A] to increase it.
○The rule-of-thumb is: 0.1mm(0.004 in.) change in spacer
thickness equals about 1.6 mm (0.063 in.) change in belt
deflection.
NOTE
○When using the plural spacers, install the thick spacer
to the movable sheave side and thin spacer to the fixed
sheave side.
Spacers
Part No. Thickness
92026-0034 0.3 mm (0.012 in.)
92026-1569 0.6 mm (0.024 in.)
92026-1617 0.8 mm (0.031 in.)
92026-1565 1.0 mm (0.039 in.)
92026-1570 1.4 mm (0.055 in.)
•Assemble the driven pulley (see Driven Pulley Assembly
in the Converter System chapter).
•With the transmission in neutral, rotate the driven pulley
to allow the belt to return to the top of the sheaves before
measuring the belt deflection. •Measure the belt deflection again and repeat the above
procedures until it is within the standard range. •Using the flywheel & pulley holder and pulley holder attachment,
tighten the driven pulley nut.

So, if I have a replacement belt on hand and I have a lot of deflection, would you replace the belt or remove a shim???

I have my teryx torn down to the belt and trying to decide which route to go right now....

yea, I went ahead and pulled just the thin shim. Hindsight is 20/20 but I wish I removed the thick shim now. I don't have any of that infamous squeeling or anything.

HOWEVER.....
in Low gear on asphalt I'm lifting the front wheels off the ground! woohoo!!!

I'm pretty sure "Magellan" did a video on youtube.

I have an 09 LE, my belt started to chatter a little when taking off after I got about 50 miles on my Teryx. I watched the videos on you tube that are very helpful with the clutch tear down and shim removal. I removed the thin shim as recommended by others on this forum. After I put a few hundred more miles on my teryx the belt began to feel out of adjustment again, I pulled my clutch and removed the thick shim and put the thin shim in. The clutch felt better but not right and when I stopped in gear the belt would sqeal. It wasn't until Amsoil pointed out the different shims available from Kawasaki. I contacted my local dealer and purchased the shim in between the thick and thin shim that came with my Teryx, now the clutch feels better than it ever has. The belt engagement is perfect and smooth with no belt sqeal when stopped in gear. My Teryx came with the .80 mm (Thin shim) and the 1.40 mm (Thick Shim), I purchased the 1.0 mm. My Teryx has over 1500 miles with the original belt, I ride in dunes and alot of mountain riding climbing rocks climbing steep terain and hard on the throttle most often. I believe I have at least another 1000 miles left on my belt.
