are you by chance: Grade_D_Angel on Reddit's HarleyLiveWire sub?
Both of us have squeaking issues... and my resolve was to give the outer edge of the belt a small amount of thick lube.
The challenge here is that it does not last well in contact with other things, like water and mud and such.
During dry months, it will hold (without a squeak) for most of the season... but then first rain and it's back.
It seems to be a rub against the pully mech and HDMC can't seem to resolve it.

No that’s not me on Reddit. I used some mild soap a few weeks ago, and that seemed to resolve it for a bit, however it seems to be back now.

I'll be curious what resolves it for you.
I noticed in one of your videos it's MUCH louder than my squeak, but annoying none the less.

mine stops on cruise or steady throttle... and only when I throttle it comes back.

I think mine is a combo of fine dust and perhaps the belt is rubbing on the inside of the drive sprocket, as it’s not centered at the moment.
