Default kick starter help

Hey guys, I have an 01 xc300 and have been destroying my rh boot, I bought the yz kick starter , new, for a 00 or 01 yz250 and the spline on
my 300 is smaller than the spline on the yz kick starter. any thoughts ?
I will post up some pixs this weekend, just wanted to get you guys opinion.

I don't think it's the kickstarter destroying your boot. My guess is that you are hitting the boot on the footpeg when you kick the bike over.

My right boot is a little chewed up and that is why I think it is happening. It's not enough that it's an issue for me.

The '03 YZ250 kickstarter fits the '01 GasGas. Some of the earlier year YZ kickstarters did not.

yes... it where i am hitting the peg with the shorter kicker.
I have lost a pretty good chunk off my boot. My hips are gone with arthritis and I try to point my toe out, but it is just not working.
thanks guys, i will get the later model.

Hey Jay,
I have the same issue on my bike. Did the older YZ kicker work out? Thanks!

I have the same kick starter on my 07, and not only is it a better length, but it is a better design than the stock one as well. It's sealed on top so dirt and moisture doesn't get in to the pivot as easily. If I have to replace my 2010's kicker, it'll be a YZ one going on.

I put one on my bike,I had the short stock one which was good enough to easily kick my 300 but wearing out .Really like the longer yz one though as I never come close to whacking the footpeg.Highly recommend for that alone ,now just to see how it holds up

Also I got it from honda east toledo for around 75 bucks-cheapest i found anywhere and it shipped fast

Turns out mine was missing ball and spring. I fixed that for @1.50, so far so good, although it took some patience to get the damn thing on! I ended up using a 7mm socket to hold the ball/spring in place and then slid it over the kicker arm. Without that I may have burned the damn thing down!

No matter now though. I am in engine rebuild mode. Seems I may have toasted the crank. Like they say, "If ya aint breaking it, ya aint riding hard enough!"

Thanks for the replies all!!!

got a 07 yz kickstarter and when i put it on my 07 ec300 it slides back and forth on the shaft. the splines dont go all the way through like on the GG one so the bolt just tightens up on the shaft but the starter will slide back and forth. Any of you all run into this
