Last time I had the belt chirp it showed up right after having the rear tire changed by the dealer! I agree with Dazco's statement that some of the dealers are clueless about how to adjust the belt tension or alignment. Good news was that I tightened the rear wheel by a 1/4 turn, checked the tension within spec, and voila! No more chirp....

So you actually lift the bike by the exhaust?: The headers are the lowest points on the bike but I have been a bit appprehensive to actually put a M/C jack under them.

Nope, I put one of the lift surfaces under the CAT mounting points and the other falls just right where the sump extends just slightly below exhaust level. No pressure on the exhaust what so ever. Pit Bulls have wide lifting surfaces to distribute weight.
