Question Acceleration squeal at 2k rpm

Hey all,

Anyone have an idea as to why I get this annoying squeal accelerating in low gear around 1.75 - 2.25 rpm? Sorry if it's hard to hear it on the noisy road.

I can't hear it but many times a squeal under acceleration can be traced to a loose fan belt. Old trick is to spray some WD40 on the belt and see if the squeal goes away.


Or it could be something totally different.
