Nice tensioning system

The tensioning is done by the generator pulley. It's two seperate pieces that when placed together have a V-groove profile. Shims are removed from between the two pieces that allows them to sit closer together and the belt rides higher out on the pulley.

Kinda visible on my motor here
It's actually a pretty ingenious idea. Its easier to appreciate the German engineering if you work on one yourself. Unlike conventional tensioners there is nothing to fail...
