my guess is when you replaced the bearings you didn't get one of the pulleys lined back up. Taking the edge off a belt tells me something isn't running true.

You didn't buy the original size belt, could be it is wider or narrower, or the most likely, not have the correct number of ribs? When counting, you count ribs on the belt, grooves on the pulleys.
I suggest buying the correct belt. Assuming you have the original size pulleys and idlers, run a length of string around all of them just like the belt installation should be; measure total length of that string to obtain proper belt length. With that measurement and correct number of belt ribs (see above) go to your nearest NAPA store and ask for help buying the correct belt.
Example, when I replaced my serpentine belt, NAPA matched it to a belt for a Freightliner MDT.

update; I just saw laj's reply, and most likely that may be the cause.

also agree with Ray, IN. If the new belt isn't the correct one and is wider that can also give you the wear your getting. make sure the belt fits the pulleys correctly.

It does not take much, a washer on the wrong side? Pulley 180* off? Just a little bit will give you the wear you are having! A lazer pointer may be just the ticket, if you can lay it in the pulley, and aim to the next, and so on!
Hope this helps? Rail!

You first comment says it all, the belt should not have been a little longer.
