    Updates/Clarification:

    I have editing this thread to clean it up and removed some of the conversation stuff and bad links. Hopefully I haven’t altered the essence of the thread.



    There is reference to a “kick starter kit” 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 “kits” sold on eBay that are essentially a preassembled group of individual parts put together by the seller – 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.





    Error:

    The original parts list in dxnomad’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.



    Observations:

    -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 it’s pretty cheap insurance to use new ones – especially the c-clips.

    -all in my individual parts cost $376 Canadian, some have noted they cost $180US.

    No Joke, I went in to Bay Area Yamaha today asked for a kick starter kit for my TW200 Ron went to the back and handed me a box here you go complete with great instructions, $179. I asked about installing it he told me 1 hour. I gave him my bike and said here you go. He has more but the supply is currently limited. You can call 1-888-660-7766 or 541-756-1278. End of discussion no add ons no searching for some elusive part done.



    THIS KIT IS EXCLUSIVE TO BAY AREA YAMAHA

    Great to have all these NEWBIES letting us know about the kickstarter kit from Bay Area Yamaha, with telephone number no less........... Today I gave Ron a call at Bay Area Yamaha. Seems Ron has connections in Japan where Yamaha does offer a kit for the TW. He indicated that he also includes some instructions to help a bit with the install. This does seem to be a unique opportunity and suggests that "this kit" will only be available through this particular source. Gerry



    Given the price, I would say "jump on this while they are available"
    Take care my Friend.........

    As long as the kit includes the proper TW kick lever, ol' Ron deserves a ton of buisiness for going the extra mile on this.
    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Powdercoated '87 frame, extended swingarm, YZ fork legs, ATV tire, 14/55, XT350 tank, spliced quick-release seat, disc brake conversion, beeg headlight, beeger rack, Lizrdcooler, Lizrdventz and bunch of other stuff all covered in invisible ink.

    Ron indicated that this is an 'official kit' for the TW225 sold in Japan. Our conversation was cut short. Not sure if we got dis-connected or he hung-up on me (sometimes I use my 'outside' voice on the phone and folks think I am shouting ). My thought is 'this is the real thing' and I will give Ron a "Missing Link" award for thinking 'Outside The Box'. Gerry



    Take care my Friend.........

    I traded my Honda Shadow for a new T-Dub (a dirt bike makes a lot more sense up here in the Santa Cruz Mountains, a mile up a dirt road and that far from my nearest neighbor). Problem is, I've found myself forgetting to immediately turn the key off when I stop and put the kick-stand down and I worry that I'm not going to catch this oversight and end up with a dead battery and a PITA moment.



    I've looked at and copied almost every post regarding putting this machine back where it always should have been, and checked out the options -- I know I want a kick starter on this baby. There is a used XT set on eBay for $60, but it needs the idler for another $16 and then I still don't have a kick lever for another $68, and a few small parts and gaskets for $25 to make it all work -- $169, plus shipping.



    Here's that used assembly:





    So I started shopping and found that the "kit" comes with everything one needs to do the job. Here's the kit photo from Yamaha.





    A previous poster (sorry I can't give attribution but I've looked at too many posts over the past couple of days) bought the kit and considered buyng the 1999 T-Dub Kick Crank Boss, PN 54G-15621-00-00 to replace the XT Boss on the kicker that comes with the kit(the kick cranks are identical)but he did a modification instead. I like the idea of using a T-Dub boss with the lever and the rest of the goodies in the kit (PN 3RW-W0795-000), so that's the way I went. Here is the drawing of the XT kicker assembly and the T-Dub kicker.





    I found good prices for the parts at Cycle Parts Warehouse (recommended by another member)and almost bought them there for $188.21 but then I checked for a discount code and found one for the XT225 kit on Cycle Parts Warehouse at Xtreme PowerSports http://www.partforyamaha.com/ and decided to price the kit and boss there. The total was a surprising $149.69, delivered. Guess which way I went.



    Anyway, the parts are en route from NJ and I'll shoot some pix as progress is made.

    Drat! Wish I'd have looked in Customization before I did my "extensive" research on the subject of kick starters for the T-Dub. If I had of, I'd have found the post on the complete kit from Japan posted by JEEPRT, http://tw200forum.com/index.php?/top...y-area-yamaha/. This would have saved me a ton of work, albeit at the cost of the additional $60 this kit costs, delivered. Oh well, I'll go ahead and complete this post as it might be of use to a brother/sister who is really pinching the pennies.

    Okay, I finally got the kickstart kit I ordered on 8/8 - not too bad I guess. The TW200 boss came two weeks ago but they thought the kit would not arrive until min-October - I'm ahead of the game, right.



    The kit is complete as shown on the previous photo (no cable-whatever that was for) and it is complete but wholly unassembled except for the boss to kick lever.





    The inside section of the XT boss is 3/4 inch total across and is flush with the side of the kick lever:





    The TW boss is 1 3/8 inch total across and that extra almost 3/4 inch protrudes to the case side of the bike, providing the clearance for the brake light, etc.





    Disassembling the boss from the kick lever couldn't be much easier:



    1. Use an impact screwdriver to gently loosen the boss retaining screw - no hammer was necessary, only the flat of my hand, but it was too tight to simply use a screwdriver on these Japanese cardboard screws. Finish the job with a screwdriver, of course.





    2. There's a spring-loaded ball bearing in the boss that keeps the kick lever locked in except for cranking. Before you pull the boss from the kick lever, turn the boss slightly relative to kick lever.





    Then, keeping the ball up just give her a steady pull - don't worry, the ball won't spring out when it clears.













    3. Once the XT boss is off, drop the spring into the hole into the TW boss, plop the bearing on top and slip the boss into the kick lever (keep that ball up) lining up the flat on the boss with the flat on the kick lever.
