I know some of you guys have already addressed this, however every time I've had mine at the dealership I complained about it, even had asked them to let me know when the Indian factory rep was in town so I could discuss this with him. I can't put into words on this forum what I was thinking while riding thru Utah last year and Montana/Yellowstone this year and other times when I should have been enjoying the purr of the engine the scenery and peace but instead had to listen to what sounded like a squealing bearing going out, I came off of a quiet Vulcan 1500 shaft drive and now the noise is cutting to the bone, I will approach our local dealership to see if Indian will replace the belt/pulley and warranty the two. I decided to purchase this chieftain over a street glide and a road glide but I'll tell you this horrible noise is about to drive me to the Harley dealership. It's definitely gotten worse and anytime you twist the throttle, going on an incline or climbing a hill the squeal is just down right horrible. Indian in my opinion should have a recall on all bikes that have this old design and correct it.
