5TJ-15590-00-00 STARTER ONE-WAY ASSY $55.34
5TJ-15411-10-00 COVER, CRANKCASE 1 $77.15
5TJ-1549B-00-00 COVER ASSY 2 $24.15
Like I said I have not verified that these are the correct part#'s. Also the website does not indicate what the delivery times may be. I think I have taken this about as far as I can. Since I have an '04 I don't need to upgrade and my friend is not sure if he's going to at this time. Anyone want to pick it up from here?

In the manual they are listed as part of the same item # so I'm guessing they come with it. If your interested send me a PM amd I'll email you a pdf of the '04 manual pages.
That should be good enough. But what about the spring washers do they come with the new starter gear assembly?

Yamaha SA paid for everything on my buddies bike.
The feedback I got from a person close to YSA was that they would retrofit the parts to all affected bikes here in SA.
Now it seems they are backpeddling somewhat, saying they will only do something with bikes that have reoccuring failures.
This battle is not won yet, come hell or high water, I'm getting the replacement parts at no cost - even if I have to adduct the CEO of YSA's daughter. They live in the same city as me. I will find them

5TJ-15590-00-00 is the starter clutch #16 on page 4-76 in the '03 manual and is most likely the same in the '04. My flywheel key has sheared twice but this clutch works fine. The part numbers for the '04 have not been released by Yamaha yet, so we can't do a complete comparison until they do. I am all over this and will post all of the numbers as soon as they become available.
