It could be one of two things. The clutch alignment could be off, which will require a special tool to ensure they properly aligned. One other thing the belt deflection could be to tight. Both of these things are critical to the longevity of the belt and clutches.

If it's younger than six months old it should be under warranty, if not hopefully our vender's will pipe up on a price.. Or my private message you..

I agree about taking it back to your dealer. See what they say about it. Actually they are lieftime on belts as long as they are used properly.

Mine has not stopped squealing since I loaded it on the trailer last week (when purchased.) I know the difference between hi and lo gear situations and I'm convinced it has an issue that needs to be addressed. I'll be taking mine back to the dealer for sure.

There was a squealing sound from the belt on the new bike I went to pick up. I brought this noise to the attention of the dealer & they could not correct the problem within an hour so they assembled another new bike which ran fine. I do not know what the problem was & obviously the mechanic did not know either. Sounds like a warranty issue to me.

P.S. It only squealed when the wheels were turned left or right from a stopped position.

Then it was a slipping belt. New belt should fix this. I would also check the alignment while you are in there changing the belt.

Guy's have the same problem with my 08 and took in to the dealer, I was told it was a clutch bearing and they have it on order. I will let you know if it fixed it when I get it back next week..
