I have editing this thread to clean it up and removed some of the conversation stuff and bad links. Hopefully I havenâ€™t altered the essence of the thread.
There is reference to a â€śkick starter kitâ€ť in this thread.
1) The kit listed by Yamaha dealers is for an XT not for a TW. It has parts that cannot be used (kicker lever). It can be made to use if you supplement with additional parts.
2) There are â€śkitsâ€ť sold on eBay that are essentially a preassembled group of individual parts put together by the seller â€“ you need to confirm that the correct parts are included as it is not a Yamaha assembled kit
3) The individual parts list shown in this thread has all the parts needed (except for the error noted below) and some people refer to this at the "kit", which it is not.
The original parts list in dxnomadâ€™s writeup shown here:
Parts List Addendumlists the clutch nut part number as 90215-14168. My dealer found this to be an error and the part number that I order and worked great was 90215-14186.
-Others and myself have found that it is not necessary to remove the electric starter. The bolts do not even need to be loosened
-When the kicker is installed it will bottom out again the peg, this appears to be normal.
-some parts may be reused at your personal discretion like the clutch nut or c-clips, however itâ€™s pretty cheap insurance to use new ones â€“ especially the c-clips.
-all in my individual parts cost $376 Canadian, some have noted they cost $180US.
