after a couple mles, the heat from the motor and clutches will dry it out...not quite sure what a wet belt looks like,, but keeping the clutch sheeves clean is good practice, even buffed with some sandpaper.... a slit squeal is good, too much and it builds heat and can wear on the primary... but like the others said, ride is nice and easy for 50 to 75 miles and the RIP on her...
Well your belt is to tight. Same thing hapen to me this year after installing a new belt. Each belt have not exactly the same size even if it's the same number.
Solution: You just have to put a shim between your secondary. Dont touch to anything else. Try a small shim and if it still make noise replace it by a bigger, everything will be fine.
Sorry for my english.... :beer_cheers:
Well ,150 miles later and the belt still squeals,i guess i'm into adjusting/shimming my secondary,anyone give me a quick lesson on this as i'm a little less knowledgeable in the clutching dept....Thanks.
it's very easy realy. I bet you had a hard time getting your belt on and off two. Open your hood lift up your belt guard. Take out your side pannel at the secondary clutch if you don't know it the larger one. There should be a 9/16 bolt there remove the bolt. There should be a aluminum spacer there with a bunch of washers on it. set it down for a min take out your tool kit under the front part of your seat, there sould be a few washer there that size. Looking at the washers there and the ones on the spacer take off one think washer and replace it with a thiner one and that will fix the problem. Oh a litle hit if you take off all the washers and screw it back in your belt will come off easy for you if you need to change it in the future. But you have to put hte washers back on before you start it.
