Here's the back story. There is a part in the KLR600 kick starter that has gone obsolete. It is the guide, part number 13206-1051.
Some time ago Spike613 figured out that the guide from a KX500 might work. It does work after some modification. Spike613 identified the part and I developed the modification process.
The thing of it is, he never got around to obtaining and modifying a KX500 guide for himself. Recently he went looking for one and found out that the KX500 part has also gone obsolete and you can't buy them new anymore. The KX500 guide is part number 13206-1003.
Since he couldn't buy a new KX500 guide he went to e-bay and searched for "kx500 kickstart guide". A couple of the returns for that search were listings for a 13206-009. The sellers list this part as being for the F12MX, KX400, KX450, and KX500. Spike 613 decided to buy one. I saw the picture and thought the bend looked like the bend on the KLR600, which would make this part one that doesn't need much modification, so I ordered one.
Here's the thing. This part is almost perfect. However, it is not for the F12MX, KX400, KX450, and KX500. Those bikes all use the 13206-1003, from 1973 to 2004. This is according to every fiche system that I can access.
When I look up the part number it shows as obsolete/no longer available, but there is no information on what motorcycle(s) this part was used on. This is very useful information because parts are usually listed on e-bay by what motorcycle the part is from, not by part number.
The 13206-1003 has a sharper bend than the 13206-009, so I can't believe that it is an alternate part number for the F12MX, KX400, KX450, and KX500 guide. It has to be for another motorcycle.
Here are a couple of pictures showing the KLR600 (13203-1051) and the 13206-009 part.
Here is the 13206-1003 part, installed before the mod to flatten it out.
Does anyone know where the 13206-009 part comes from?
