I had the same for about the first 1000 miles from new, even after I had the back wheel off for a puncture repair. Most noticable when  pushing backwards out of the garage. I concluded it was the cush drive rubbers moving slightly due to chain tension. Didn't worry about it and its stopped now.

I'm not overly worried, just curious.... done ~5000 miles since new and still have the issue. I thought cush rubbers could be the issue, but not familiar with the Tiger configuration of them... I have a service coming up so will mention it.

And if on the brake disc, WD40 will make the braking slip so it's really not good.
Its unlikely that more grease would be needed, the bike is only 8 weeks and 1800 miles old. My previous bike, a 2018 XRT suffered from this squeak problem. Anyhow, several hundred miles on and Im squeak free. I will continue to monitor the situation.
