chattering starter

I have an 84 KL600. I makes a horrible noise when I engage the electric starter. The idler gears are good. I have tried my spare starter, and I have replaced the sprague clutch. The noise appears to be coming from the area of the sprague clutch. Has anyone had experiences like this? How did you cure it?
