Starter Clutches

Post by keegan »

Would an '81 starter clutch and outer stator fit on my '80?

Best advice, look at a parts manual and compare the numbers for the parts. If they match from 80 to 81, then it shouldn't be a problem installing 81 parts onto an 80, If the number DON'T match, I wouldn't advise swapping them out. Sometimes parts for these older wings are "bike specific" to that year and model, but hey, anything's possible right?
