Ok so if I take off hard from a light I hear a chirp kinda like something is slipping or a like my rear tire breaks loose but I know that aint it. Also, If Im coasting under 20 mph like coming to a light or in traffic I hear something like a whoop whoop sound.

Any thoughts?

SIDE adjuster only (E) to make final adjustments to
belt alignment.

4. Turn adjuster nuts (D) to achieve:
• Recommended belt tension
• Wheel alignment (marks equal both sides)
5. When is correct, check and adjust final
as follows:
6. Rotate thewheel BACKWARD. Tighten LEFTrear axle
adjuster until belt to track to right sprocket
flange (outboard) during backward wheel rotation.
7. Rotate the wheel in FORWARD direction. Loosen
LEFT rear axle adjuster until belt moves off the right
flange and begins to track to left sprocket flange
(inboard) during forward wheel rotation.
8. Tighten rear axle nut to 88 Nm (65 lb-ft).
9. Torque both axle adjuster nuts to 11 N-m (8 lb-ft).
10. Pump rear brake pedal several times to reset brake

The last time I went by my dealer the tech checked out the bike, he heard nothing out of the ordinary. Said the belt was a touch tight, but he said that with the bike on the ground.

Oil Im using Vic oil

Ill try to mess with alignment, but the rear wheel wasnt messed with to get out of alignment.

I just remember 1 thing about the clutch cable not sure if its right or not. with the clutch lever left alone you can actually pull the cable housing out of the socket in the lever.

He most likely checked the belt while it was warm too, so ya it probably felt a bit tight.
Its not necessary for something to happen to the back tire for the belt to need adjustment.

Regarding the cable at the housing: I just checked mine, it does pull a bit, but not much. That's on my '12 vegas though. Not sure what the spec is for an '09 KP.

you dont need to mess with alignment, just look and see if it is on the inner or otter edge. If it is adjust it if in middle it wont need to be adjusted. Then check tension and be done with it. Good luck
