Default gatorback belts

I just installed some gatorback belts on my 2000 bonneville. The belts whistle when the supercharger is winding down. I was wondering if this is normal for the belts or not.

I'm running Gatorbacks on my Series 1, and no noise.

it sounds like the belt isn't on right. check to make sure the routing is correct and everything.

The belt was probably installed improperly.

What belt did you use and what pulley do you have on the blower?
