Maybe it's not the Belt making the noise?
you think it's your belt making noise maybe it's not.
I have a chirp or vibration coming from the rear of my 2012 XCT - I believed for the first 3-5 miles every time I ride and then it disappears. Today i was trying to find where the noise comes from and when I pulled the clutch in the noise is gone ??? Back under power the noise is back. Clutch in, noise gone. Noise totally disappears after 3-5 miles no matter so that is questionable.. I have checked the tension and adjustment of belt and it is good and within margin.
If the wheel is still turning and the belt is moving over the pullies but the noise is gone makes me think it is not the belt.. Just a thought.
I have the belt tension tool to use also and that checks out within margin
Still chasing what causes it... I also live down a 1/2 mile gravel road...
