'So in the last few days I've noticed this chirping or screeching noise coming from the front of my bike.

I am going to describe the sound the best way I can

Ill start the bike and let it warm up as usual and not jumping on and going until it reaches about 95 degrees and that's when I go.
Ill be going along and switch into 2nd and then into 3rd and that's when I notice a chirping or screech noise that sounds like its coming from under the front fairing.
Its sporadic, and when it happens it's usually a few chirps, or screech like noises or like something rubbing almost.....Kind of like a belt chirp from a car

It really does not sound like its coming from the wheel assembly as the sound is closer to me...

Is there anyway this could be engine related or maybe the cooling system of my bike?
Maybe a radiator or water pump ?

It is my first bike and it is a 2006 Suzuki Sv650s with 12,400 miles and everything is stock.
Im still learning everything and know the basics so any details or information would be great!

Thank you

I have been told that the exhaust gasket (cylinder to pipe) can make a noise similar to that. Hope its something simple.

First I suggest lightly applying the front brake while still under power.
If that makes a BIG difference in the sound you probably need front brake pads.

Then it could be a vibration in the fairing or other hardware, including the drive line. (chain?)

Do I understand it right that you only notice it once in 3rd gear or above.......like 30 MPH or more ??

A visit to a shop for them to test ride would be in order, I think, before you ride it much more.
It could be something critical but at this point who knows.
