middle gear shaft

Hi all ,

I have a 05, 1100 v-star with only 14,200 miles on it and my middle gear shaft broke. I just bought my bike two years ago and already spent a lot of money on it fixing starter clutch, and putting new tiers on it and now this, middle gear shaft. I herd that I could drill and tap the end of the shaft and put inn a harden bolt . has anyone done this and if so what size of bolt and did you use just a hand drill?

middle gear shaft

Yet another new question posing as a new member introduction - what in the wide, wide world of sports is going on here?????

Despite the lack of required introduction (I won't even mention the lack of pictures), I'm sure someone will help. I don't have experience with this specific issue (and hope I never do). Based on my reading of the Knowledge Base (google wiki vstar 1100 knowledge base) I think your looking at a big expense - sorry. Middle drive gear failure is not fun, but maybe you're problem falls under another description.

Really though, welcome to he group.
