I know exactly what your going through, I have an 07 JP and lowered it also. I tried to notch the front pulley cover, but all it did was make a mess of the cover (by this I mean that I had to keep trimming the cover to keep the belt from rubbing and ground the max amount that I could, and the belt still rubbed). I designed an open style pulley cover to eliminate the possibility of thebelt touching any thing, alsoremove the belt guard on top of theswing arm, if it's not rubbing now, it will soon. I'll take a picture of the cover I madetonight and post it for you. It was not hard to make and cost me approx $200(material, fab time,and chrome). Plus the new cover look great I get a lot of complements on it.
