Question Chirp/Squeak Noise On Deceleration

I'm experiencing a quick chirp/squeak when decelerating... more like when I throttle it and back off quickly it makes a quick chirp/squeak. It sounds like it is coming from the right side of the bike... not sure if it is the tranny, or something else. Has anyone ever experienced this before? I haven't found a shop yet, that I feel comfortable with, so any advise would greatly help.

A little info on the bike:

94' HD FLSTC with an EVO 93CI Big Bore Kit and Trik Shift 6-Speed RSD Transmission w/belt drive.

... I do know it is not my tire chirping because I know how that feels.

can you reproduce the noise while revving the stationary bike in neutral?

Could also be belt noise too. Check alignments, rub a little candle wax on inside pulley edges, see if noise goes away. .

Most likely its your aluminum rear pulley is worn out. American Ironhorse Choppers are famous for that. There is a company that will refurbish your pulley with nylon teeth so that doesn't happen again or you could just switch to a chain like I did.

+1 on it coming from the belt.... I would guess that you hear it after riding for awhile and not before everthing is warmed up. Check to see if the belt is riding real close to the outside lip of the pulley. As previously mentioned, a little candle was or bar soap will help to verify.

Does it have a BDL Belt Drive on it? They were famous for that.
