  • Keep getting wrong starter for my bike

    Yeah I have a 2000 1600 Road Star and I keep getting the wrong starter the shaft is too short is there different starters for the bike

    Are you ordering one for a warrior or for an XV 1600/1700? Yamaha makes Road Star Warrior and Road Star XV 1600/1700. However I believe the starters are interchangeable. I cannot stress this enough it's almost always best to get OEM replacement not aftermarket junk shit off eBay. Also you can usually rebuild your starter easily and cheaply. If you buy a starter for $60 on eBay from China it will not last very long.

        All 1999-2007 starters are the same part number...

        4WM-81890-01-00

        2008-2014 use a 5vn number (usually denotes 04-14 1700 parts but in this case only FI bikes apparently came with 5vn starters)

          So either your 2000 or your 2003 does not have a factory starter.

            The 2000 is not factory and im ordering for the xv now i was reading that there's a 1602cc an a 1670cc starter now could that be the difference in the shaft length? Cause I've been getting the 1602cc

              I would have thought that too but from looking at the parts diagrams that would not be the case. It looks like all carbureted bikes used the same starter and then fuel injected bikes used a different one

                does it bolt to the engine or are you just comparing the starters side by side and 1 is longer in the body than the other? I have a heavy duty starter on mine and the body of the starter is longer than the factory starter but the mount bracket is in the same place so it bolts to the engine just fine and works great.

                  A couple of photos would be nice.
