Default one way starter gear

My one way starter just went out and i was looking at the l and a designs. i found ones on ebay for 200 dollars, but there was another one with a 52 gear..that's what my question is about. What is this 52 tooth gear for? and would i need it? cuz i puts the prize to 300 dollars... let me know if it would be better for me to just fork over the 100 dollars more and just get the 52 tooth gear. thanks

Default Re: one way starter gear

Ripper Racing, Alba, and a lot of places on Ebay have the L&A kit w/ bearing and oem gear for around 260 bucks. If you're paying more than 50-60 for the gear anywhere you're getting ripped off, I don't think it's any more than that from the dealership.

It's nice to get a look at the original gear to see if yours is bad before you order, but it's a lot less hassle and pain if you already have it on hand. As the one-way clutch goes out it scores the hub on the 52 tooth where they meet. Here are a few pictures for reference. If you just started hearing problems with your one-way and have promptly stopped riding it and torn it down then you'll probably be ok with the original gear. But if you're like many of us and rode it well past that point you'll need to replace the gear as well.

Bad one-way


Bad Gear

A little 0000 steel wool and maybe some emery cloth and a new spring, wait a minute this aint the Mcgyver show. Yeah that looks like its pretty well shot. One ways dont live to long on a rough surface. I would replace all.

Yep, that's almost always why. The longer you leave it go, the worse it becomes and the better chance you have of wrecking more than just the one-way and 52 tooth gear.

My one way went out and I thought it was the starter not catching. I read many threads on different sites. Raptortranny.com talks about this and also gives instructions on how to replace it yourself. I bought my one way from ripper racing and installed it my self. Took about two hours. Bike purrs when it starts now.

When mine went out first time the bolts almost backed out and came close to getting sheread off. You dont want metal breaking thru the engine. Not sure what esactly will happen if you continue to ride be safe replace it cause remember when it fails metal shaveings are going thru your engine and or a chunk of something from one way could get cought up on a gear some wear and crunch and cause you more problems.

I read up about the problems with the one-way, as soon as my wheeler made that all familiar sound ..the first time..(the starter turning over freely with out any engagement, followed by a chatter, then the motor would turn over), I wasted no time fixing it. I didn't even fire it up after that. The crazy thing about it..is it was as chewed up as the picture maddog has (a few posts up). Couldn't imagine how bad it could get if you're hear'n it everytime you start the bike...Makes me cringe...

The starter clutch continues to spin over the 52 tooth even after its started. So its being damaged as your motor continues to run, not just when your starting it.

Some engineer(s) from yamaha should have had his/her/their @ss kicked for that $hitty design, let alone 1 year, but the continuence of it for the following years.
Felt good to vent!

They changed it in 02 and again in 04, it just didn't do the job.
