Does this happen often? Because it sucks.

Sometimes.
Especially likely if your auto decompression is not working.
Also, if you haven't got the pilot screw adjusted so that it starts easy, you will beat it up even more because you have to kick the hell out of it to get it started.

Happened to me several years ago. not too bad to fix. you only have to remove the side cover. Getting the spring and auto decomp parts all lined up is a bit of a pain. take some pics of the assy inside the case before removing it and that should help a lot.

2 years to the day since I replaced mine.
Photographed a 3 hr x-country race with it broken.
Was a bugger to crash start for a whole day in damp conditions...

Yep, it happens. I broke one too. Now I try to kick while standing on the pegs so It doesn't slam the peg mount so often.

This is one of the easiest starting bikes ever, I used to start mine by hand often. You guys need to lay off the Wheaties and spinach!

I've been around five of these bikes in my years. Never seen a broken kickstarter shaft. First time for everything though.

Yeah, this bike usually kickstarts really easily, especially when cold.
I had just warmed this one up, then turned it off, and then went to start it again, and it didn't start on the first couple kicks, so I gave it another good one, and it just snapped off.
This happened about an hour after I'd drilled and helicoiled one of the oil filter bolts, so I'd just put a new gasket on that side cover. I'm almost positive I had the autodecomp all lined up correctly. It did feel like it was working as normal, and as I mentioned, I'd easily kickstarted it 3 or 4 minuted before this happened.

Also boys and girls, JFYI, in case some of us are not yet aware.
The auto de-compressor only operates in the top half of the kick start swing,
so what this means is that if she don't fire on any particular kick you MUST
let the kick start lever come ALL the way back up to the top of its stroke before putting the boot in again, otherwise you are not engaging the
de-compressor even if it is all set up correctly.

No prizes for guessing how I have learnt this.

Cheers
Mick
PS,anyone know if the XT 350 is the same under the fuel tank as the TT's re frame etc
as I really do want a big tank on my TT and no one seems to make em for the TT, yet they do for the XT. Any help / idea's appreciated.

Nobody is doing anything wrong. Every XT350 I know of eventually broke that kickstarter shaft right at the inside of the splines. Yamaha simply under-designed that part.

That is what got mine recovered when it was stolen. After it broke (again) the thieves abandoned it and our intrepid county police discovered the VIN was for a stolen bike.

Not as far as I can tell. The XT uses rubber "pucks" to locate the front of the tank.
