||damn chirping sound as well....&^%$#
||I recently replaced a set of ape-hangers on a twin-cam 88b. The new bars were 2" shorter, hence no new clutch cable needed. However, after a few hundred miles from the replacement job at the shop, NOW I hear a slight sqeak or chirp coming from the rear-end, or the primary....Thinking the kid was in a hurry,or that I didn't get him enough beer...I checked the placement of the clutch cable and remembered the cable was behind the bars before, and not over the bars....I changed the cable placement, thinking the clutch adjustment might have been altered. Same shit.
Thinking there might be a quick fix and that other Bro's might have had the same experience...?
Belts/pulleys are newer(under 2k) on em..Or was this just another instance of it being called an H-D thing(HUNDRED-DOLLAR)....?
Doesn't seem to do much of anything except annoy the &*%#! out of me. ONLY happens when throttle is closed(as in down-shifting) or letting off, as in a corner, and only lasts a milli-second. SSSQQUEAK....
Swing-arm bushing? Clutch plate?.....and NO. There ain't no duct tape or zip-ties or barbed-wire holding shit together on my prized scoot.

- Are you running a chrome pulley, if so try cleaning belt with a wire brush this should fix it, but it may come back if it dose you will need to replace the belt. When the pulley is new it wears a glaze on the teath of the belt. By: 2wheel on: 10-16-2006
- I 've got an 01 deuce, and put a 200 rear tire on it,no problem. The chirping started and after looking and searching, the belt was hitting the inside of the primary where one of the bolts go in. To fix this problem I adjusted the height of my bike 3/4 of a inch, using the adjuster nuts on the shocks.I've had no problem since. By: Roaul_Yates on: 10-23-2006
