I have an annoying belt noise on my 2014 FXDL, more noticeable on deceleration. Belt tension is within specs hot and cold, rear axle is within alignment specifications. I have tried over tightening and loosening the belt, each having minimal impact on the noise. The belt appears to be hugging the left side of the rear sprocket.
I've thrown the rear wheel out of alignment by moving the right side forward 3/16" to no avail.

When candle wax is applied to only the left side of the belt, the noise goes away temporarily.

The noise really wrecks my ride. Does anyone have any other ideas?
Thanks!
Ed
