Default v92c noisy front drive pulley

hello all, my v92c is making noise at the front drive pulley, a sort of barking rattle. it only does this for first 1-2 mi. it wont do it under acceleration or steady cruise. it will do it during decel/wind down and will immediately stop when clutch is disengaged. as mentioned before it only occurs when bike has sat overnight, once 1-2 mi. have been traveled noise goes away and does not recur as long as eng./gearbox stay even slightly warm. thanks for any info/ideas you may have.

First thing you need to do is look behind the cover for any sign of a rust red dust. It means the pulley nut is loose, and if you fail to take care of it. You will be on the side of the road with a stripped pulley

Default thanks

just an update on the noisy eng. drive pulley. instead of pulling the exh. and pulley cover i borrowed my buddy's gun bore camera and took a remote look under the cover. there was not really any thing that looked out of place, no rust dust/metal filings/oil/other debris. went ahead and tightened the belt tensioners another 1/2 turn each and the noise has now gone away completely (woohoo). i'm still concerned that i may have the belt too tight but i will check and adjust by the victory shop manual tomorrow. but for now i think (hope) the problem may be cured. thanks kevinx for the pulley nut suggestion and i will keep you posted on the end results.

There is a squeal coming from my front pulley of my 04 TC when be belt get wet. I was going to pull the cover off the front pulley and have a look, but it looks like the exhaust has to be removed to access the lower nut. Can the cover be removed with the exhaust in place?

Default pulley cover

sofakingblue: i am not a victory tech,but i dont see any way to remove the pulley cover without the exh. being removed. however, i don't think you would have to remove the whole ehhaust. yes you will have to disconnect the front header flange at the cyl. head but it appears that the rear pipe may be disconnected at the 1st joint downstream from the header flange, this is very nearly all of the exhaust system but it is very accesible and should be pretty easy to do. BUT! i would pursue the belt tension/pulley alignment angle as far as i possibly can before you start disassembling any thing.

You have to remove the MUFFLERS, but then you can loosen the flanges at the head, and pull out on the exhaust enough for clearance

Default exh. removal

yeah i try not to disturb any more parts than i have to. im not sure that sofakingblue is to the point that he needs to do that yet. it seems to me that he may have a tension problem.

S92 and KX - thanks for the replies. I sprayed some silicone/wax lubracant on the front pulley and it seemed to quiet down [at least for now]. I was afraid I would have to remove the exhaust - need to buy the gaskets first.
