Re: How is this for the new belt routing?
One thing you will need to watch out for is belt vibration. The lengths of belt between each pulley are carefully engineered so that they will not flap when the belt is tensioned properly. If you mess around with the lengths you could get some funky vibrations that will destroy the belt and bearings in the accesory in short order. Another thing is that a belt is like a rope, you can't push it or it will slip. So plan accordingly.
