First off, I do have a service manual, but I am at work and wanting to order a tension gauge through work today. I need to know the tension setting for my '13 SG and belt width to determine which gauge I need to order. Thanks for any help.

From my OM (2011 Ultra):

Checking Drive Belt Deflection


Push upward on knob until O-ring slides to the 10 lbs (4.5 kg) mark on the tool and compare belt deflection to scale on debris deflector.


Belt Deflection

MODEL -- INCHES -- MILLIMETERS
FLHX/FLTRX -- 1/4-5/16 -- (6.4-7.9)
Other models -- 3/8-7/16 -- (9.5-11.1)

I think the belt is just shy of 1" wide.

Sorry I can't give specifics, the tension tolerance was changed for some models with a service bulletin to a slightly looser setting. I don't know if the OP's machine was on the list or if his manual has the new tolerance. Anybody have specifics?
