Question about 2006 Yamaha Stratoliner Midnight

2 Answers

I have a 2006 Yamaha Stratoliner that makes a peculiar whirring noise when the RPM goes above 2000. It does not appear to come from the belt. I.E. I pull in the clutch 40 MPH and the noise stops. When I throttle, the noise begins again. Any thoughts?

I've read that on some of the 06 models the drive pulley nut will back off and become loose. This is very dangerous, pull off the front pulley cover and check it, it is behind the rectifier. I have a 06 roadliner and checked mine its easy to check.

Cold weather squeal


Check your belts and pulleys. Belts should not be cracked and pulleys should turn freely with no noise.

I keep loosing belts on my stratoliner. Over the last year I have broken 3 belts on my 2006 Yamaha Stratoliner. Wondering if it is a supension problem or is belt tension a weekly adjustment. never had any...


Hi, Albert belt squeaking or chirping or buzzing or singing are sounds that make up the orchestra of "Belt Music" these noises are caused by a variety of conditions that can usually be corrected ie. belt tension too loose, swing arm alignment no true, warped or loose sprockets and bent sprocket guards, but the majority of music is mainly caused by miles and miles of heat build up from the engine, transmission, and sprockets transferring that heat to the drive belt, and over time the sides of the belt will become crystallized/glazed into a finish that is harder than "Chicken Lips" and everyone knows that "Chicken Lips" are harder than diamonds. This is the reason your brakes squeak. There are many home remedies out there, fan belt spray, rubbing a bar of soap on the sides, Dupont Teflon Lubricant, grease, silicone spray, WD-40 etc. etc. these are no more than Band-Aids and the noise just comes back in a couple of days, You must remove the "Chicken Lips" The first and most important thing you can do are align the belt in the sprockets so that it tracks dead center not rubbing up against the sprocket guard this may require using shims on the front and rear sprockets, while the belt is off, check the teeth for being broken-cracked-missing, check the sprockets for having square teeth instead of rounded teeth, if any of these conditions exist, replace the belt and both sprockets. If everything looks ok then place the belt on its side and with a drill or die grinder install a 2-3 inch velcro sanding pad with a ScotchBrite disc, gently dust both sides of the belt to remove the shiny crystallized glaze the surface will become dull once the fresh material is exposed. Reinstall the shimmed sprockets and reconditioned belt and adjust the tension with no rider on board to 5/16-3/8" up and down with 10lbs. of force, I have had excellent results with this method and it is cheaper than buying a $300 new belt. Again the key to this procedure is "BELT ALIGNMENT" you need to keep the sides of the belt away from the sprocket guards.

Loud whine when deaccelrating on yamaha stratoliner


Check the condition of the drive belt - and make certain it is properly tensioned. If the belt is excessively worn - or too tight, whining under deceleration is quite possible.

Chirping noise at 2000 rpm


An easy way to get a good idea of where the noise is coming from is to use a short peice of wood like a broom handle , hold it to your ear and touch different places around the where the noise seems to come from. If it is in the belt area spray brake clean in small bursts at each pulley noting when the squek quiets or goes away.
