chirp has always been associated with a too loose belt when under load. assume you ruled that out? belt should be tighter than you would think. these are industrial grade belts can take the stress, but do not like to be loose. poncho
Yea, but there is no load on the belt..OK, I have a dumb question. Isn't the belt still turning at 70MPH with clutch disengaged?
Ive owned, ridden, wrenched this bike for going on 8yrs. mostly never, no issues with belt chirp. if I did, it was resolved in short order. I swap out two rear wheels often(<15min) as I have one each fitted w/cartire and mc donut, depending upon what mood am in and where how I plan to ride.Some people HATE it does that.. but I view it kind like the bike is telling you something is wrong. Kind of like when your car brakes start to squeal...
I told my doc that it hurts when I do this... he said "quit doing that"!On a dyno in 5th gear. gets bad around 50 then goes away at 60mph and comes back at 70 thru 73 or so.
If you take off the 2 covers that "cover" the front belt pulley, does the noise get any louder?Does it sound anything like this??
