Default Belt chirping like a Bitch in heat !

Fine one day , next morning , holy crap sounds like a group of Sparrows begging for seeds .... Scrubbed the belt and rode , no change . Full belt adjustment per manual to perfection , and another full scrubbing of belt and pulleys , belt looks brand new still . Still chirps like a bastard for the first two miles then subsides , but still there , pull in clutch and coast goes away , so only chirps under a load .... Pulleys look fine , no wear or dings . Any ideas ?

I spray the front pully and the part of the belt easy to get at with the dry Teflon stuff they make for chains. About once a week on busy ride times - my belt is silent

Or maybe a maxipad?

Yep. I've used this too and it does work.

Just like new shoes... patience and time fixes many things. I've had some real squeaky shoes.

Also, to spare us new MAGS is Whining Again Threads, git you some foam ear plugs at wally mart and just ride man.

You know we love you bubba!!!

Canning (paraffin) wax rubbed on the sides of the belt.. If you can, check the accuracy of your belt tension gauge.. Mine was off by 3lbs so would have been +30% too tight at the 10lb mark.

Awesome. Just lowered and readjusted my belt last night. Lo and behold, a little chirp.

I use that stuff religiously on the dirtbike and the mountain bikes.

Thanks!

So , general consensus is squeak manifests from the sides of the belt ? I guess I'm not the only one with this issue evidently ...

When my belt is totally clean or very dusty it squawks very loud. I've used canning wax on the sides and all is well. I'm going to give the spray a chance. My only complaint is the wax melts out and looks like oil around the belt/pulley cover.
