Exclamation Chirping belt

Amazing to me that I can take my bike in to the dealer here in Indy and have them change my rear tire, ask them specifically to be sure to check the drive belt tension because I don't want the chirping to come back to haunt me on the road.... And sure enough, on my first ride yesterday after getting the bike back the chirping came on so loud it was embarrassing!! Had to stop and get a can of dry lube just to calm it down a bit until I got back home. Checked the tension myself and gave it a half turn on the adjusters to get the belt back at spec tension and voila! No more chirping! Doesn't give me much confidence in my local dealer......
