It would be better than Not breaking it. Stadium Yamaha is a better place to get it anyway. Mention the Forum for 15% off. It's OEM vs copy.
Stadium yamaha wanted with shipping $48.00 for the part and I was able to use the part number I obtained there and searched and found kymcopartsonline.com
and I got the same part for only $35.00.
I did notice that for some parts Stadium Yamaha was cheaper as well as the other way with the kymco parts online website. I supposedly will also receive the part in 2 to 5 business days...
I will have to put it together and run it for a week with that one piece missing and then try to replace the part next weekend.
If it is any consolation the part I broke was " FACE DRIVE **(0) C.2005.03.25 - 22102-KUDU-220"
Also out of curiosity, how dry or wet should it be inside there? Mine has like a greasy oily black film... my hands were black from trying to get the belt off the first few tries before giving up for today. Can I safely use something like brake klean to clean it out?
