09 X15 350 MCX Squeal

Hi All need you expert help. Took my X15 out for its pre-summer ride. All was well except for a squeal from the engine. Now my X15 line most has always had a slight squeal at lower RPM's but this sounded different. After 30 minutes of various speeds the squeal went away at idle but remained at higher RPM. First thought was time for a new belt or at least try a bar of soap to see if it goes away. Friend with same boat had same issue last year and said he did nothing and his went away after a few hours. Figured it was from sitting the winter. Anyone have suggestions? I don't want to mess with this too much once it's at the lake for the summer and if I rip it apart I need to do it this week. Help.

Sounds like the belt is slipping to me. Sometimes you will get a low voltage if it is slipping on the alternator.

Good news. It was the belt. A little soap on the belt and she was purring again. I will pick up a spare just in case.
