Squeaky Engine

Recently purchased my R300 in late May/Early June 2018.

Presently at around 1,730 miles.

At a certain speed range, my engine emits a super high-pitch squeak, which fluctuates with the rev levels (or speed? unsure).
It sounds like metal rubbing metal. I deeply sense this could, unfortunately, correlate with the fact that I forgot to change my oil and oil filter at mile 600 (in accordance with the maintenance schedule). Feeling stupid, but owning my mistake. I didn't take care of this until yesterday, at mile 1,717. Mind you, the bike drives pretty fine and smooth; accelerates pretty well, too -- especially since taking care of the oil and filter.

Assuming the oil-change/oil filter-change isn't related, might any of you fellow Rebels know other possible causes of "squeaky" engines ?

I hope this doesn't indicate an issue larger than i'm anticipating.

Thanks in advance,

Noises can be hard to pinpoint. I'm thinking that if you didn't do the maintenance on the engine you probably didn't do any maintenance on the chain. Lube it and see if it goes away.
