A friend of mine got his bike out for the first time this year and the battery was low after he started it he let it run in the driveway for about 11/2 hours to charge the battery I know stupid move, but it had melted the drive belt. Could letting it idle that long cause it to melt or is there another problem?

Why didn't he just take the bike out for a ride for 1.5 hours to charge his battery instead of letting it idle for that long???

Sorry, but that was a bonehead thing for him to do. With that said, I can't figure out how it melted his belt?

Officially he now has to go to the nearest Harley dealer and return the bike. He fulfils criteria of being such a dik that he does not deserve a harley.

I have to agree with the comment made that if it got hot enough to melt the belt what does the oil look like. Better change the fluids too... WOW!

Electric start and fuel injection allow very stupid people to ride Harleys.
Very true...on both these points.
If you can drive a car you can pretty much operate a bike nowadays... That's bad! There are idiots...total idiots that have no business even looking at a bike. People that can't tell washer fluid from engine oil. Not good stuff...
