you can buy a non slip belt spray from any auto joint that will do it if its oil or grease causing the slip

Would this be rite?

hang on a sec, it might be the same as my mate on his VT. When it starts, it makes a distinctly loud sqeaking sound. The mechanic said it was the starter motor.

pull all the belts off and start it see if it still does it.
then check your idle pulleys/bearings then belts

Yes, another vote for alternator belt.

Our ED does it also, but you have to revv it to get a squeal, and then after the squeal, the belt grips, and you can see the voltage gage come up from 10 to a little over 12...
