Thanks Terry.

I use, (I think it's JeffR's method.)

Brake on, and rev the beezesus out of the engine for a few seconds. That tends to cure a squealing belt.

Or

Accelerate using high revs from standing stops. Can't do it all the time but as often as the opportunity arises.

I'm w/ Doug - whack the throttle open from take-off to put tension on the belt. When I had the Burgman 400 this was the big topic on BurgmanUSA forum. Seems like most of the folks there w/ the squealing belt problem eased on the gas when taking off.
I never had the squealing belt issue w/ the Burgman and (knock on wood) no issues with the Silverwing so far w/ the brief time that I've had it.
Guess the best way to say it is ride it like you stole it and give 'er the gas.

I've done the brakes on high revs for 5 second method. I didn't notice any difference. Neutral

You could try the "Deliverance Method", drop your pants and stand behind your scooter saying "Squeal boy!", that'll cure it. Smile

So what is the best remedy for belt sequel at low RPM?
Have tried all the above and and am thinking of removing my belt cover again and using a light sand paper on the plates and a cleaning savant on the belt.
