Hi,
This is where i am at the mo. I have a GasGas 400FSE 2002 and recently the
starter clutch bolts came loose within the flywheel and caused me a big headache. Flywheel and magneto windings and starter clutch bearing wrecked big style. Thankfully i have source a flywheel and magneto dirt cheap. However a starter clutch bearing is going to set me back 200 quid sterling.:banana:

After looking at the DRZ engine parts i found that i can make the starter clutch bearing fit and have sourced one for next to nothing.:busted:

I have machined the GasGas retaining ring so the starter clutch bearing slides in nice. (I also have a spare). All i need now is the exact diameter of the spigot/boss on the DRZ flywheel cog so i can machine a ring to fit the GasGas Flywheel cog as the GasGas is smaller. Hence save a shit load of dosh on an old bike.:banana:
Anyone got one to hand with a micrometer:thumbsup:

Cheers Guys

Don't think he will be seeing your request anytime soon.

Perhaps post this on a GasGas site?
Maybe a Gasgas site in the UK?
