Suzuki 2014 DF50 weird intermittent squealing noise

I have a 2014 Suzuki DF50 with around 20hrs on it. Last trip out I noticed an intermittent squealing/sucking noise. It sounds like it's coming from the front of the engine, near where the motor cover sits. It didn't do it all the time and it did it in neutral and in gear.

It's like a loose belt on a car type of noise. Didn't seem to effect performance at all and I could sometimes get it to go away when idling in neutral if I gave it a few revs then backed off quickly. Not sure if it's there at higher RPM as the motor noise drowns it out. Any ideas?
