06 650i high pitch sound while holding brake and gear at a stop

Hey guys. Quick question regarding my 06 650i. It has 214 hours on it and recently it started making a high pitch whine when im at a full stop and its in gear. I had assumed that it needed a belt adjustment so I had it brought over to the local ATV repair shop the mechanic said the belt was fine. Now I keep the 4-wheeler about an hour and a half away from where I live on my parents property so I didn't have the opportunity to meet up with the mechanic in person.l, although I did explain to him how he should try to replicate the sound but he said he didn't see anything abnormal.

I'm hoping someone here might have an idea of what might be causing it, because it never used to do that. Thanks in advance.

Belts that are too tight..ie less then 22mm deflection will always squeal. Belts that have been idling in gear for long periods allows the bottom of the belt to get shinny spots from the primary's spindle will also squeal. Best to check the deflection. 22-27mm but the best is 23-24mm and while out deglaze the bottom of the belt with a scotchbrite pad. Go easy on it though.

Appreciate it man. Im gonna bet on shiny spots. Its still the original belt which is 12 years old now, even with only 214hrs. At what point should it be changed due to age, and whats the best belt to run? I typically only trail ride with my kids, but i do run it aggressively at times.

Well that belt being 12 years old it's well past time to replace it. Probably after 5 years or 4K miles whichever comes first. Just get the OE Kawasaki belt. It and the Teryx belts are the very best you can buy for these.
