I recently broke the kickstart axle while starting this bike (86 TT350). It broke off outside of the case and the kicker fell to the ground, not a good feeling!! How difficult is it to replace this part? This bike is starting to show age, $28 for new choke, $10 for new clutch lever etc... How long does Yamaha make parts for a model such as the 86 TT350's? I have had the bike for 2 years and had no engine problems, is this a very reliable engine or am I due for major repair work? I enjoy this bike. I have it set up and plated for light street duty, but recent mechanical problems are making me think twice about taking her too far from home when I feel like going out on the country roads. When should I stop putting money into this bike? I purchased in 99 for $800 and have spent another couple hundred on it since. Any advice greatly appreciated.
