Have a 2103 Wildcat x 1000 that when you first go to take off in forward or reverse, it squawks! Thought maybe a worn belt however still does it with a new belt. The squawk goes away once the rpms go up. Tried to attach a video but wont attach.

It started with the old belt, which looked new, replaced with the one Cat recommended and same problem. It is a wet clutch in it.

The wet clutch isn't magic. Primary operation is driven by rollers under the cover plate. Faster rpm forces the sheaves closer together and the belt rides higher, so the ratio to the secondary clutch allows for more speed. Lots of videos online of this. What is a "squawk"? Are you certain it is from the clutching?
Jack up the rear so both tires are off the ground, then rotate a rear tire; both tires should move. Feel for binding and listen for noises.
