sounds like your starter is either staying engauged or not completely dis-engauging after start up. take it off and look at your starter drive gear and flywheel teeth.

flywheel, didn't wanna hear that...:sosad:, but it isn't a deep noise, it's just sounding like the starter is clinking inside, I'm really hoping it's just the starter, flywheel can not happen right now haha

Have a friend crank it on and try to locate the noise. Try disconnecting the coil wire and see if it does it.
