It could be the belt. See related threads/posts.

Most likely the belt, especially if its louder when its cold out. Ive heard of others spraying teflon on the belt to reduce this noise...

2003 Vegas - straight pipes, Big Sucker air filter kit, black powder coated everything - foot controls, handlebars, clutch and brake housing, fork lowers, luggage rack, wheels, digital speedo with powder coated housing. Relocated key switch, red plug wires. Mustang solo seat. LED ring blinkers in front. Black DEI pipe wrap.

The spray Teflon will help you identify if it is a belt tension/alignment problem. If a couple of squirts quiets it down then you are on the right track. But don't stop there... you still need to figure out why and solve the real problem.

2013 Cross Country Tour: Custom paint, stage 1 exhaust, Lloydz Hi-Flow air filter, cams (HOH-VM1-DR), timing gear (HOH-PTS), Power Commander V, Auto Tune module, Gustafson flip shield, OEM passenger backrest with Cycle Ops luggage rack, Vic HID, heel shifter, Rockford amp, Infinity speakers all around.
