I have a 1991 sportster 1200 belt drive. When it's in neutral and I roll the bike forward it will make a clicking noise. It sounds like something is dragging in the belt. I made a video, you can head the noise best toward the half way point. It will only happen going forward, no noise backing it up. Doesnt seem to happen in gear either, but it's tough to tell. Any advice is appreciated.

Check rear wheel alignment and belt tension. Look at the sides of the belt for unusual wear spots and put an eyeball on both sprockets looking for the same.
Then convert it to a chain final... no more belt problems.
