Are you sure it's not "belt whine".
These bikes are notorious for a chirping/whining sound.

On "Gadget's Fixit Page" he describes a whining sound that's caused by a clogged or pinched tank vent line... with your mileage, that would be something to check.

900 drive line noise

I have an 07 classic LT. It has lots of whinning noise. I loosed the belt 1/2 turn and it helped a lot. The spec. from Kaw. seems really tight. These bikes are noisy and not a lot can be done. I switched to 20/50 oil that helped as well, but KAW is the only mfg that don't recommend it.
