Hi everyone i just put a new belt on my 94 v-max 600. It makes a noise when i start off and when its stopping without using the brake. I think it started when i got the new belt. I have no idea what it is.
Also, check your belt tension after you've cleaned the clutch sheaves. I've never done this on a Yamaha so I don't know the procedure. The point is that if it's too tight it will squeal in situations like you describe.
