    Hey, i recently bought a XR 400 R from '97.
    But i do have a issue.
    The kick-starter is worn. And a new one is about €120,- over here. Way to expensive for a €950,- bike.
    I can't find a used one so here is my question: Are there kick-starters from other models that fit straight on it?

    I have one off of a XR600. I don't know if it fits the 400 but if you find out it does, I'll let it go pretty cheap. PM me if you want it.

    You might also try www.bikeboneyard.com.

    I would like to try, but I live in the Netherlands....
    Shipping it would be very pricey i guess.
    If someone knows what would fit (or won't) i can search for more models than only the XR400.

    It's real easy to see if a XR400 and XR600 kickers are compatible. Just compare part numbers from a Honda parts fich.

    Just did that. Different part numbers and the shaft's look different.

    Been there done that, no luck around here. (at least not for a normal price) (tried the Dutch German and UK ebay.)
    But till now i've only been looking for a XR400 kickstarter
