Gonna research numbers but any help getting that damn belt back on is appreciated.
Sounds like you have an incorrect replacement part. If the numbers are different, the parts are different.

I believe there are different sized belts depending on options such as ABS. The local dealer originally gave me the wrong sized belt too. You'd think they would know enough to ask...

At least you can put the old belt back on and ride until you get the correct part.

Unlikely you're feeling the engine lift, unless the bike is rocking on the center stand.
