Nice to find this site. I am getting a 2003 WR 450 from a friend, and have read on this site about the electric starter / woodruff key issue with this bike.

All the links on Thumpertalk for the repair for this problem do not work. Does anyone have a working link for this repair?

Hi the electric starter has no key, its the rotor which the starter spins through the drive gears.
Had mine shear, get a puller and pull the rotor and refit fresh woodruff key make sure taper shaft is solvent cleaned etc before re-assembly
