XT600E kickstart.

I want to fit a kickstart to my 600E, I have a kick start shaft etc, off an srx600 . But no kick start leaver. apart from the obvious xt600 and srxs are there any other models in the yamaha range that i could use the kickstart from.?

The research has it looking easy, i have the parts and i will be doing it and do a report on the instal In words and pictures, it has probably been outlined on this or other forums but i could not find any info.
There must be other yamahas with similar splines and similar shaped kick start leavers that will work on the XT600s, but if others know what will also fit they are certainly being tight liped about it, asked on four relatively active forums and not one word of info. XT 600s are old news now few seem interested in them any more, ask a question like this 10 years ago you would have been in to 20 replies minimum. Mind you it is quiet around here these days nothing like it was when i was on here before.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
