The noise is normal and is part of the "Yamaha engine noise". If you look at the features listing for the new 08 WR, it says they have tightened up the clearance on the primary gear to cut down on engine noise.
If you want to be sure, take your clutch cover off, pull the clutch and basket, and check to make sure the rivets are not loose on the basket where it attaches to the primary gear. Also make sure the starter clutch bolts are tight.There will be play between the kick starter gear/primary gear and the basket, side to side, and maybe even fore and aft, but as long as the rivets are tight , you are OK. Pm me if you have any questions as to disassembly, it is very easy and only takes about an hour max. You will need an impact to remove the basket nut.
