Smile Chirp/Squeak Noise On Deceleration

I'm experiencing a quick chirp/squeak when decelerating... more like when I throttle it and back off quickly it makes a quick chirp/squeak. It sounds like it is coming from the right side of the bike... not sure if it is the tranny, or something else. Has anyone ever experienced this before? I haven't found a shop yet, that I feel comfortable with, so any advise would greatly help.

A little info on the bike:

94' HD FLSTC with a 93CI Big Bore Kit and Trik Shift 6-Speed RSD Transmission w/belt drive.

... I do know it is not my tire chirping because I know how that feels.

I figured it was the belt or a loose bolt causing metal to metal rubbing or squeaking

Now that they diagnosed your issue I'll tell you a shop you will feel comfortable about.
You won't find anybody on here that will disagree....

I know it's a long drive since they're on 1960 but that's where I go and I'm in Pearland so it's a long drive for me too. Worth it.

Very late update, but pretty interesting to say the least.

The transmission on my bike is a 6-speed Trik Shift RSD. Well, whoever owned it before me had the bike serviced elsewhere and the technician at whatever shop they took it to, outfitted the clutch cover assembly with a sporty setup, NOT a Trik Shift product. The parts were not even the same in dims, or looks. The manufacturer was floored! They had no clue as to how it was even moving under its own power and they were really surprised to learn that none of their parts were damaged! The sporty (HD parts) parts were damaged severely and was the culprit in making the chirps. Luckily I brought it to a competent mechanic before more damage was incurred.

How the did they manage that?
When you say "clutch cover" are you talking about the trans end cover on the r/h side or the primary cover?

I'm talking about the clutch cover assembly where the clutch cable screws into the right side of the Trik Shift transmission. Basically the clutch release cover, inner/outer ramp, push rod, throw-out bearing, and a few other parts were sporty parts. All these parts were riding on the really long push rod that is going to the primary side.

I'm fairly certain I'll be replacing that long push rod in the near future because I'm sure it may have sustained some wear with those other parts.

Make sure to grease the pushrod and throw out bearing with high temp grease before you install it.

I'm taking it to Millar Machine next month to inspect the workmanship. They were highly recommended by the manufacturer. Crossing fingers that I won't have to replace anymore parts and only simple adjustments need to be made... my luck though the bike will get hit by a meteorite during transport
