Lots of people have run the SRM setup dry,
mine was run dry for several years without problems, I added some grease the last time I had the cover off
Its supposed to aid cooling,
The worst thing you can do is run the belt too tight, the dynamo tends to rotate tightening the belt as the strap is tightened
I use a small clamp to pull the dynamo housing lip against the inner timing case and then tighten the strap,
Belt needs to be able to twist 90 degrees easily when all clamped up
Dynamo regulators unit uses a wider belt than the original SRM , that said I am still running the first belt that came with the kit, probably 20k miles on it
