All years and models. They refer to it as the countershaft sprocket fix. Remove the front sprocket and apply locktite to the splines, reinstall the sprocket and you're done. It does make changing the front sprocket interesting though.

Lube the cable and the linkages where it goes into the motor...

Use your left hand more often... :evil6:
