DRZ 400 starter clutch gear

7 posts in this topic

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

I know it is old topic (from 2009) but anyhow I will try!

I also have 2003 GasGas FSE400 Supermotard and unfortunately same thing happened to me (lose bolt, wrecked starter clutch,el.windings...) I need more details about DRZ400 starter clutch fitment( I can get complete DR-Z400 Spraq Type Starter Clutch for 140$ and just starter clutch original for my Gasgas is crazy priced over 500$)Please, let me know what exactly need to be machined to ensure proper fit? Any picture, mesurements or anything else to help will be greatly appreciated THANKS,

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?

I just receive Complete DRZ 400 Sprag clutch setup, it even came with DRZ flywheel cog and bearing, all brand new and for few bucks over 100$! :goofy: What a price difference!!

With my old parts from GasGas and new one from DRZ I can see now what exactly need to be machined to make this conversion. I will post some pictures and report when is done ... Cheers,
