Daz, how much did you have to crank down on that belt? I've put about 50 miles on the bike since the adustment. The obvious CHIRP is gone, but it's still making an ever so slight chattering sound coming out of first gear. Also, one thing I noticed after taking a closer look is the adjusters on the rear are ever so slightly off by about a mm or so on the swingarm ticks (one's about dead center between and the other is more like 1/3 between the same ticks on each side). How close do these need to be? I was very careful about putting the same amount of turns on each side when I made the adjustment so I wasn't really looking at this until afterwards.
