Are you sure that it is not the belt slipping? I have the same problem and at first I thought that it was the tranny but I eventually found out that it is the belt slipping. This problem seems to be pretty common. If it really bothers you, you could always just replace the belt.

Yeah that is exactly what I am talking about sorry I didn't specify. Mine does it and it doesn't really bother me anymore.

Yeah the older the belt the more the squeak.. my new gatorback has yet to start squeaking between shifts.

If you think of it in terms of Newton's Law of Motion the belt is spinning around the pullies, and when you shift instantly and the rpm drops so suddenly the belt takes another split second to slow back down fully.
