98 replacement kick start lever

Kick lever broke at the knuckel right down the cast seam at the ball lock hole.

My question I post to all you Gurus is , Which replacement should I get?

I have heard that Yam knew about this problem have the newr bikes been having failures? What year would fit? Is a 426 lever stronger at the knuckle? Or should I order the Billet model?

If money is not an object then a trick BBR lever would definatly be the way to go, but if it is, then heres one on e-bay.

It even came off a 98 model.

Although finding one off a 99 or later would be better since they supposedly corrected that problem.


I've been using this one for three years now with no problems. It looks neat and it's a little shorter than the stock kicker so it's more comfy, you don't have to wrench your hip as much to get your boot up on it.
