Welcome from Houston, Texas. What size Vstar do you have. If you make a garage, link below, it will answer questions people have about your bike. Here's a few interesting threads to check out when you get a chance.

There are tons of threads referencing noises after tire changes. Typically itís that the belt has been over tightened and/or the alignment is off.

Welcome from Atlantic Canada. Try posting your question in the appropriate tech forum. Not everyone reads the new introduction posts and you'll probably get more responses there.

I don't have a belt drive either but I've read on here that the tension Yamaha recommends is too tight. There have been discussions about it here but I don't have a link to any of them. I'm sure someone will chime in with it though.

Welcome! I agree with whatís been previously stated. I own a 950 thatís belt driven and Iíd start there as well. Posting in the Vstar section will give you more exposure and get more feedback.
