There has been some debate as to which cases and side covers are drilled/machined to accept the spindle. The hole is likely cast but the finish machining might not be done. Best answer I can give is...maybe. someone will likely be along with more concrete answers.

Good info on the 230. I hadn't heard that.

Even though you were asking specifically about TTR230, I'll leave this here:

These just got delivered to me today. Bottom end was listed as 1999 TTR225. Cast but no finish machining.

The side cover was listed as a 2004 TTR225. Again, cast but not drilled.

When I built my other 225 I used a cover that was listed as a 1999 TTR225. As you can see, the hole was drilled, but when I received it there was a plastic plug in the hole.

Not sure if there is a concrete rule on the XT and TTR cases. Side covers were possibly remaining stock being used up. My understanding is that no TTRs were factory equipped with kickstarts, so I would assume they aren't machined. If you happen to run across one that is, cool.

To your original question, I found this post that may be of value.

I'm just going to piggyback my own post for archive purposes. I just came into possession of a pair of cases labeled 2002 TTR225. The right side case appears to be kickstart ready.

Seems to be no rhyme or reason.
