GT 550 k starter clutch parts

Postby Stevengt750 » Sun Mar 17, 2019 10:07 am

GT 550 k starter clutch parts required as last part of rebuild to get the bike back on the road
Struggling to find the parts I require either new or secondhand.
Have tried the normal Places eBay and discount bike spares but none of them have the bits
Plenty of whole clutch assembly but none with the starter clutch parts on them . If anybody
Has the spare parts or can point me in the right direction it would be appreciated cheers Steve

Hi the parts I need are the large drive gear and the tin plate that is held on by the three screws as they are the most damaged but would prefer to fit a whole assembly if someone had one as there is some wear on most of the parts but could get away with reusing them (hopefully) if necessary .

Thanks for the link but unfortunately someone beat me to it so still looking for the parts . Didn't make it clear to which gear I need it's the one that is driven by the starter idler gear the large one that slots into the back of the clutch not the one on the clutch housing itself cheers steve.

So the part number you require is 12620-34003.
That is going to be hard to find. It may be more practical to upgrade to a Borg Warner clutch which is more freely available and more reliable. The early starter clutch that you have is prone to breaking up so much so that SuzukI changed the design. It can't be seen from the outside my J has a Borg Warner.
The differences can be seen here on GT-26
