After I got home and took it off the trailer I started it and the sound wasn't there. I haven't had the chance to ride it again or change the oil for that matter. Anyone have similar experiences???

Could be the starter clutch. Put it in gear and roll it backwards a few inches. If it's the same sound then that's the culprit.
It wasn't the same sound as that, but it was higher pitched and did not sound like the average noise coming from an engine.

My 05 wr450 has done this to my old starter and my brand new (300 bucks) starter that has less than 250 miles on it!!!.. I cannot figure out what is going on...it is not the clutch gear and not sure that the limiter would have anything to do with this problem so my next solution is the starter relay...my dealership here (canada) has never heard of such a problem and cannot figure it out either. I am lost right now and a little peeved because of the new starter. The new starter was only used once when installed to make sure it worked fine. I wanted to figure out the problem by isolation so i never used the starter since new and it is tottally screwed.
I have also noticed the sound that you are hearing when I am picking the bike up off its side when I lay it down (accidently of course) and the bike still running. Anyone else have this problem...the teeth wore so bad off the starter that the teeth can not engage....
