Anders the most important mod on this plane is the tailwheel as it will eventually break. I'd contact HK and get a new one but in the meantime take a small drill bit and drill through the yoke into the part where it broke, might be easier to visualize if you remove the assembly. Then take a very small diameter screw and affix the yoke. Put the tailwheel back on and your done. Won't break again unless you really hammer it.
