One of the neighbor kids who is always hanging around the shop with my boys managed to break off the end of the kickstarter spindle on his 1986 XR250. He doesn't have a whole lot of dough to take it to a shop, so I'm trying to help him. Am I going to have to split the case to replace it? I was looking at a parts diagram and it looks like the shaft goes all the way from one side of the case to the other. It appears to have a circlip on each end. My hope is that I can take off the stator cover and the clutch cover, remove one of the circlips and slip it on out. The question is, can I get the replacement spindle back in... If you know what I mean. I would appreciate any advice I can get... Thanks! Also, if anyone has a spare used spindle lying around who wants to sell it for a reasonable price, let me know. I feel bad for him. I took him on a poker run with my kids and the damn thing broke 5 miles into the ride. It was his first real trail ride and I hope to get him back on 2 wheels as soon as possible.
