Broke my case today
Posted November 01, 2003 - 09:23 PM
I went to Yamaha Dealership and asked the service dept. if they heard of this happening? Yes...the have seen a few. Total cost of repair $1800.00. When they called on a previous repair, Yamaha said that the idle is the problem. If the idle is below 1800RPMs the kickstarter can kick back. Alternate fix would be to have the case welded.It looks like all you have to do is push the case back together and weld it!Alocal shop says that they can fix the case no problem.Do you think that i should pull off the right side crank case cover to look for any other damage ?? :excuseme:If so what should i look for? Has anyone ever herd of this happening before ?If you thought i was scared of the woodruff key not any more now it's the kickstarter!! Any advice would be great! Thanks Scott

It seems like way back when, somebody posted something similar to this so it's not the first I've heard of it.

Yamaha shop today and they said you ordered the parts I told you to order..
Cool. The case looks like it will be OK
even though the aluminum they used doesn't weld as good as some of Yamahas
eariler bikes did.....Welding it in the
frame wasn't as tough as it looked...
give me a call later....BC
OH yeah....tell those guys that were gonna charge you 1800 bucks to give me
a call when they want some MAGIC done
Well this is what we found......
Don't let that K/S fly back or this stop will break...and then guess what happens? You guessed it the cases gernade!!
