Don't so it
I assume you meant "don't do it" ??
Sorry...I don't mean to correct you...I just want to make sure I understand your point because I was just about to go and do that starter wire mod (disconnect the blue/white wire), and if you've found that it created a serious problem for you, I'd sure like to know about it. Maybe you could explain what happened?
Maybe I should reconsider doing it (the mod)...I can certainly live with it like it is.
Sorry..can't help you in terms of starter interchangeability.

I had carb issue I was trying to work out and had also just disconnected the blue/white
wire at the same time, not saying it was the disconnected wire that caused my problem,
more likely my frequent E-restarts and/or too long pressing the button . Now my starter
makes a screeeching noise pretty consistantly if I use it and sometimes when I kick it.
After searching threads I learned the bushing fails alot in the starter and is somewhat easily
replaced cheaply If you buy the right bushing (not available from yamaha) A new starter is
almost $250 !!!!! .Or it could be the starter clutch- $170+.
I guess I will be kicking it for awhile.
