☆This time I personally need your help....☆
This was a tough decision to decide on. I generally stay behind the scenes keeping this site chugging along. Joe, is the one that gives out the amazing wealth of knowledge he has. I've put an amazing amount of time into the bringing together this website and not to mention have footed the bills a few times. I've kept us hacker free for a damn long time. I never ask much of you guy/gals. Only if we get in crunch time and the site needs a little help. Ive never asked for the ridiculous thousands I have seen another site ask for.. ridiculous is the perfect word. I even removed ads for those that log in, severely cutting revenue. Sites been about helping people, not making money. I feel bad actually doing this.. but I need help. I have gastroparesis brought on from diabetes(20+ years). I've been struggling with this nightmare for over 3 years. Finally diagnosed beginning this year. Look it up. Look up worst cases... that's me. Ive lost 60 lbs since January. 28 days ago the company I've worked for for many years found their dirty lil way to fire me. I was approved for up to 3 days off a week for fmla.. that really pissed them off. So illegally fired, savings drained from medical bills, bad diabetic now with no insurance. I'm in deep shit. That is politely saying it unfortunately. If any of you guys cant help please at least keep me in your thoughts. If this was wrong, me asking for help, my apologies. I'm declining in health fast, and unemployment hasn't came through yet and that in itself is a nightmare. Anyone who can, please donate to the website. This time it goes to help me. Thank you everyone. Again, my apologies for asking. I honestly don't know what to do or where to turn.

Is there an aftermarket starter clutch that people prefer?

CR,

The old parts have been superseded into an assembly now consisting of two parts sold as one.

That interesting about those idler gears. I may replace those because the one that engages the flywheel is a bit worn on one side.

The clutch I am referring to is #1 in the drawing. Mine spins either direction. Is there a preferred replacement for it?

Go to this topic again. This time it will be on page one instead of page two.
It'll be the second posting of page one.
Then scroll down a bit and you will see the one way clutches.
Notice the number of teeth, one has 18 teeth the other has 19 teeth
Make sure you purchase the correct one for your XV1000 or it won't fit:

Ah I see now thanks

Mine is the 19 tooth. Order a caltric one. Waiting for it and the gasket. May get those idler gears while I'm in there. Sounds like a big improvement

CR,

Trust me, it is a big improvement. They started using the new idler gear assembly in 1994 model year.
