I'd sniff around for an electric start motor with PTT, but otherwise in poor order, so you could salvage the parts and fit them to yours. Given the reliability of 3 cyl Yams, you may be have a problem finding one. Given the age of your motor, it may be time to consider an upgrade to something newer with PTT and E/S?
To buy the parts, even second hand would probably cost more than the value of the motor!

I priced PTT as an add-on for a 2002 Honda 40; the hydraulic pump and pistons alone were over $600US. Kinda killed that idea pretty quick.
