whining squeeling from bike

I Presume its the belt, bike had 40k miles on and i dont know when or if the belt has been changed, there was a rubber on metal squeel so checked belt it was loose, adjusted correctly still the noise, plus under hard acceleration the bike feels like the belt is jumping.
I take it that its probably a dealer part as cant find any anywhere lol. Going to be paying stupid money for it i bet.

Any belts from other yams fit or are they all around the same price?

The Yamaha belts are proprietary and are not sold by others. Some are made by Gates but, you cannot buy them from Gates. They all cost about the same. Yes, pricey and sometimes not in stock.

I'm always working very diligently to discover the obvious.
