Kick starter interchange?

2 posts in this topic

Will a 2003 kicker starter fit an '04? One part number is a "5TA" and one is a "5XD" but the rest of the numbers are the same.

No. The '03 had problems with breaking the kick starter assembly that sometimes caused the crankcases to break at the right rear corner. The original kick shaft assembly for the '03 was remade from stronger materials, and the '04 was simply made bigger. You can't mix them because the splines at the lever are also bigger on the later ones.
