Yes, middle of the belt, tires on ground, bike standing straight up if possible. I'm not familiar with 2009 models, but earlier Dyna's had small holes in the swingarm to measure from to the center of the axle. A shadetree method is to push your finger on a scale to show the required lbs. then approximate that pressure to the belt. Err on the loose side.

Yea I did measure the straightness of the axle with the holes and the belts tracking center of rear sprocket. I’ll have to do that with a scale
