    I bought a used Metro over the winter. The right side belt wants to ride off track. It has new belts so I don't think that's a problem but I can only move it a few feet when the belt walks out of the groove. Anyone have any ideas how to cure this? I hate to have to take it in to the dealer for this.

    your going to have to adjust a pulley and make it tighter. Or adjust the rod that goes from the pulley to the pistol grips/ ECS. all your trying to do is tighten the tension on the belt between the drive wheel and the gear.

    If it came with an owners manual, there may be some troubleshooting tips on there, and or it may tell you how to do it.....
