Honda TRX 300EX Starter Issues

Looking for some help as I have been spinning my wheels as to why my sons 300ex is making a screeching/whining noise when starting up. Any help would be appreciated. I thought it was the starter, but the starter sounds fine when not connected to the gears. I thought it was the one way starter bearing, so I replaced it and still have the sound. I have a video of the sound but cant seem to find a way to upload it.

Bearing sound? Grinding sound? Change w/temp or cold vs. warmed up? How long before it goes away? Throwing out ideas here.
Remove and lubricate every possible area of the starter. Teeth, gears, shaft,everything. Until you can figure out how to load video, I’m out of suggestions.
