any progress on450 starter

I ve been away from the board for about 2months and was wondering if their has been a "true" fix for the starter problems of the 450.

i have already replaced the starter clutch 2 times and the stater motor once the bike has 2400km on it. also my friend wants to know if the blue and grey wire mods will work on his wr250 03' as they worked well for me

I have an '04 WR450 and it has a different starter drive. Appears to be a more robust fix than Loctite. I did some comparisons between '03 and '04 and it looks like the new parts will fit but I don't think anyone has actually done it. Anyway see previous post ('03 to '04 Starter Drive Update)for details http://www.thumpertalk.com/forum/showflat.php/Cat/0/Number/743663
