Tough one, Have you called around the local shops for a replacment in stock.
If they have it I would say replace it, if they dont have one and need to order, maybe this would help
Depending on where the spring broke (you say 2 - 3 mm)
then go to your local Hardware Shop / Automotivr, find a hardened washer about that thick to replace the broken piece.
THIS IS A TEMP FIX UNTIL YOU GET NEW ONE
Also It is a Suggestion not meaning you would do it.
I personally would get a new one and wait if I had too

You know it is much better to wait until you get a new spring, while your at it order all new springs since the one that broke and the rest of the existing are all crapped out. Also if you spent the money on a new basket you should just replace the plates as well. I mean a new basket with old plates, old springs and (1) new spring just sounds a little hokie to me.

You have an engine that is spinning at high RPMs and that is not a good thing to be playing with untested parts. I am sure that you could find a spring somewhere that would probably work, but if that spring for some reason fails it will send pieces through your engine destroying your clutch basket, case, seals etc. I dont know where you are going to find the parts you need in Israel as motorcycle shops may not be as plentiful but if you go to Yamaha of Troy they have a parts schematic.
Heres is a link to a 2000 clutch assembly:
Find the part you need and order it. I am sure you could have it there in a week.

its not a part that made only for yamaha clutch,
anyway can i weld it or stretch it if i wont be able to find a new one?
what can be the cause for the broken spring? it seems like a very strong one...

Dont even think about it. Unless you find someone with a YZ basket never mix and match.
Never look for a quick fis Gal, These bikes can cost alot if you do it wrong. Thats just the game we choose to play........
Do this right or you will pay later

Welder??? KTM??? WHAT are you trying to do???
Why are you in such a hurry? Patience will reward you with a bike that runs. At the rate you are going you are going to destroy your bike and could possibly hurt yourself in the process.
Well I wish you the best of luck

This reminds me of Kung Foo
Try to snatch the clutch spring out of my hand
But Why master when I can get one from the ground in a junk pile
Ahh Foolish Grass hopper becouse you neva know what evil can come with mix and match

I called hinson and of course he sold me a new basket but I told him that the springs and the retainer was gone and he gave me new springs and retainer with the new basket, The only thing I had to use was the gear and it was ok.
What I'm getting at is call PE and see if they have any springs so you don't have to buy a new basket, Like I thought I was going to have to do.
Hinson has a heavy duty retainer that they use with their baskets or you can use the stock one.
