Re: 1982 KZ750 LTD STARTER CLUTCH HELP!!!
The one from any 650 or 750 Kawasaki air cooled four family including, KZs, Zephyrs, GPZs, or ZR7 are same. The 550 is a physically smaller engine, so probably not. If you are thinking about a used one, think again. There is a lot of disassemble involved and a used one may have some wear also, so you may be doing this soon again.
The so called rebuild kits usually include only the rollers and the springs, any of these may be your problem, but the inner hub (where rollers roll and catch on) also wears and is not visible to the naked eye. For all this work it is better to replace the whole thing with a new one, or at least rollers, springs, and inner hub, which is about 80% anyway.
