If your wheel bearings have play in them it may be time to replace them. If you don't already own a bearing greaser it would be a good investment.

What model year machine you have? The OEM belt on my new 2018 1k squealed from the time I bought it. It was more noticeable to me at lower speeds though. At the regularly scheduled 1000 mile/100 hour clutch service I cleaned and inspected the clutches and installed a new Gates belt and no more squeal.
Having said that, I also noticed that the gearcases on these new machines are just naturally a little noisy compared to most other machines. I worried about it at first but it seems to have quieted some with a few miles (I've got around 1600 on it now) or I've just got used to it and don't notice anymore. If you inspected the oil when you changed it and didn't find anything unusual I'd guess the belt is the source of your noise.
