try superglue, duct tape and make holes on each side of the crack and tie it down with zipties! Also make a hole at the end tip of the crack so that it does not propagate.
Let us know how it goes.

Most likely due to stress in the metal. That notch is a perfect spot for a crack to start.

Never a bad thing to learn how to wrench. I'm glad I did just that back when I was a poor student - little money and lots of time. Bought a fixer-upper of a '86 Yamaha Maxim 700 for $1200. Overhauled the engine with the largest overbore pistons (ended up 707cc) and repainted the bike - all by myself. Had a lelluva great time doing it all. Rode it from a couple of yrs then sold it for $2000. All said and done, I prolly lost some $500, not even counting labor. All worth it, in my book.

Nowadays, I haven't hit the MegaMillion yet, but I have next to no spare time, so I have to pick and choose what I do in the garage. Ce la vie.

hang in there.. but I would look a little deeper in the trans if the flywheel had a crack like that.

If you need some budget fixer-up fairings for the TLR let me know; mine are coming off in a few weeks.

I also have a good set of wheels and exhaust with Jardine cans.
