Last year I got my 295 together and had a great day riding. I went riding the next day, April 2010, and I the 1st kick of the day I snapped the kick start shaft. See picture: So today it was deja f*cking vu. My buddy stalled his Honda pig 450 and couldn't get it cranked so I cut my beast off. He finally gets the pig kicked over, first kick on my beast and I felt it snap. I looked down and everything looked good, but I knew better. I reached down and I pulled the kick lever and about 1" piece of the shaft out of the bike. W T F? That is 2 shafts that snapped in 12 months:banghead: Anyone else snapped the starter shaft? Can anyone explain why I would go through 2 in 12 months? The original shaft did last 4 years so I guess I can't really complain about that. Can anyone find an oem schematic that shows this part with pricing. All of the schematics that I have found show the part but no reference number or pricing. MAX!!!
