Angry Starter clutch problems

I recently bought a 2006 V Star 1100 classic and had to replace the starter clutch. From what I have learned through research, there seems to be a problem from "kick-back" when the engine is stopped. Yamaha has changed the 2 gears between the starter pinion and flywheel gear to a "damper gear assembly", in attempt to stop this from occurring. I don't think this will solve the problem. I have 2 questions:
1. Has anyone had the damper gear assembly installed and it worked?
2. Does anyone know of any aftermarket gear configurations that will solve the problem?

Thanks for any info!!!
