Help! My 04 sounds like the starter is sticking

Help. My 2004 sounds like a bag of hammers after it starts. It almost sounds like the starter is sticking on. I took the cover off and drained oil. I can turn starter with fingers but sounds weird. Also my bike has been hesitating bad at 11000 rpm. I hope the two are not related. But I don't know whT to do. Do I get a new starter. Help!

Life begins at redline!!

Cam tensioner or generator..and i din't mentioned the worst case scenario...bearings.
The starter just starts the engine. maybe it's stuck but i doubt it. Check your cam chain tensioner first.

Hopefuly is nothing serious and you get it sorted out.

If you can't check it, take it at a mech, and don't redline it.
