Sounds like the drive plate mounts on the back of the flywheel or the Hardy spicer. Try putting the steering hard to port then starboard with the engine running and see if the noise changes if it does its probably the hardy spicer coupling, Yamaha in their wisdom have done away with the grease nipples on the new model. If it is only when you start/stop then its the drive plate mounts.

Hard or Soft it's never BIG enough
