I did my mates '03wr450 and got the parts from "jp parts".The starter clutch is now worn out,not related to the '04 upgrade parts. Very easy to do.
This will tell you what to do,BUT you don't have to take off the flywheel cover,just the small cover and fit the bush,then fit the new bits and smicky smack!

So there is no need to remove the entire side cover as was done in this write up and the only parts needed as as follows:
04 Torque Limiter Part # 5TJ-15560-00-00 @ $204.99
04 Torque Limiter Cover Part # 5TJ-1549B-00-00 @ $28.99
04 Thrust washers (need 2) Part# 90201-105A8-00 @ $ 7.98 total

So in simple terms remove the small side cover, take out old Torque Limiter and bushings, put in new stuff, put on new side cover.

Hey DMK75, what's the best way to take out the old bushings?
