Kawasaki FB460V Loud Whine at Startup

Kawasaki FB460V engine (very loud) whine at startup, after engine warms up , the whine goes away. More pronounced when unit is not run for awhile. Engine is on John Deere 165 Lawn Tractor. Could this be a bearing noise?? Fluids levels are good...
Thanks for the help..

First I would seperate the clutch and drive belt from the engine to make sure the noise is not traveling up into the engine,and if it still did it i would say that it is proberlly a bearing ,the 460 v in some cases would tend to throw the balancer through the block but i cannot remember if it wined first,also you might use a piece of wood and place it as close to the bearings as possible to figure out where the noise is most pronounced

Belt Dressing...

Dave,
Thanks for responding!! Since the first posting, I tried to locate the whine, it seemed to come from the lower half of the Mower. I then thought the belt could be slipping until it warmed up. I then purchased some Belt Dressing, applied some, and the Whine has gone away. Thanks again.
Jerry...
