Tends to happen if you wheelie alot, clutching it up, and thrash the crap out of it all the time (thats what happened to mine), normaly on older machines, can make it shudder when you pull away also.

clutch springs (shock load)

Here is a pic of the back of one of my 2000 model clutch baskets with the starter clutch removed, see the six springs, normally with paint on. these are retained by 3 rivets, so not very user serviceable. They're normally a tight fit,, if not they jangle and rattle, strangely it throws the noise out the left side of the engine?!

You sure the baskets hitting something? they have pretty rough flashing removal marks in the basket castings. Was the nut loose? Did it have the big fat washer in between the inner hub and outer basket?
