Question About Belt Noise

I have an '09 900C and have noticed that when traveling 2 up the drive belt tends to whine slightly more under accleration conditions than it does when I am riding solo. This is more noticable when going up an incline than it is on level ground. Me & my passenger have a combined weight of about 350 lbs and there is a Kaw sport windshield on the bike which may be directing some noise back at me. I don't think I have a problem but I wondered if anyone else experiences this. Thanks in Advance. RIDE SAFE

Kawa tends to over tight these belts so just loose it up a bit and this problem should go away. Mine has no belt issues of any kind but many have complained on this.
