    TW Kick start

    so I think I will take the plunge, I am going to install a kick start on my 2014.....the only parts I need are the kit 3RW-W0795-00-00 and the crank boss 54G-15621-00-00 ...is that correct?.....is it that difficult to install? or can a back yard hack stumble his way through?

    I didn't check to see if those numbers are correct, but if you mean the XT/TTR225 kickstarter kit and the TW200 crank boss, then yes that is what you need.

    It is not difficult to install. Hardest part will likely be removing the old gasket from the side cover. You also have be careful removing the inner clutch basket. There are several ways to do this (but using a screwdriver to hold the basket in place isn't one of them!).

    Here is a good tutorial that WhereTheHellIsJames? prepared (except that it is not necessary to remove your starter).

    Expedition Bike? Not really, it's just WTHIJ's TW200. - Page 2 - Expedition Portal

    If you get stuck or have a question, just ask.

    Great idea to do this right away - you should have no trouble at all removing gasket andmay be able to reuse it. It's a super simple mod and an enjoyable one too. You'll love it.

    Get a set of heavy clutch springs while your at it . beats taking it apart later . $10 bucks on ebay or elsewhere and be there in two days . And it will be slipping sooner or later , or might not if you get the springs . I am not hot on shimming but others have done it.
    Under technical help look for the installing kickstarter and clutch stuff . the clutch spring issue will come up in one or the other As a matter of fact some are at the bottom of the page .
    Don't forget the grove at the bottom of the main case for the gear spring and the recess in the idler gear to the inside and might double check the seal install . Has fooled more than one.
    You can see the grove in the case below the kick shaft bearing ( where the shaft goes on the inside} and as you install the shaft you can see the spring going into the grove as you slide the shaft into the crankcase .. Put the idler gear on after the kickshaft is in place.. Remember the seal installs on the outside of the outer case

    Does Bay Area yamaha still carries this kit? I noticed some posts from 2011. Will the same kit fit the 2002 bike as well as 2014? I want to do this mod before I get back in the boonies loaded with gear. The kickstarter is cheap insurance in my opinion.

    Are clutch springs? I'm not against changing them while we have bikes apart, just would like to get some other opinions. Any advice is welcome.
