It measures 5mm on the flywheel width but I have 2 choices on the height looking online...5mm x 6.5mm or 5mm x 9mm.
I would guess the latter but could anyone confirm please ?

Not sure the size but this bag from tractor supply had what I needed. Cant remenber the cost but I think it was around $10-$12 for 30 pieces.

OK but in the UK you cannot seem to find stores with bags of keys lol...I have a bearing supplier locally who might have some but would have been nice to know the actual depth before going there.

Yamaha still sells the keys.

I've always used OEM Yamaha keys but some people have reported "hardware store" keys fail easily. If the taper is in good shape, clean and dry, and nut torqued properly, you don't even need a key so I'm not sure if the aftermarket key is really a problem.

Hi Mark, I would buy Yamaha, but cannot be doing with 5-7 days wait lol...I got 1 today and made it fit nicely, I used some grinding paste to try and clean up the flywheel bore and the crank taper....tightened it up with impact gun and she started virtually first kick, I think I should have took her out of the garage first lol...she smoked me out....
Here's a short video of her running....
