I've had an 03 since 03 and haven't had a problem with my starter. what are the repercussions for leaving it be?
the biggest change from '03 to '04 will be the starter system upgrades. . they should be done and they cost a couple hundred dollars U.S.

my '03 sheered the flywheel key twice. they did the lap and glue yamaha update. then it broke the side cover. i couldn't risk being left in the woods. there was no choice but do the update. since then my starter motor went tits up and the starter clutch failed. i am now kick start only. yamaha has always maintained that there were no issues with the '03's. ha!

The starter gear thing has me a tad worried. I've been running into an issue the last few months of riding where occasionally I'd hit E start, the motor would cycle and then it would lock, I'd try to move the kick start (which would only move 1/4") and the kicker would lock up, then hit the E start which would move again everything would be kosher after that.
