What to do if part no longer available?

So from my accident the other day, I guess my gearshift must have been damaged/cracked . I went to put my bike in first gear yesterday and it just fell off lol.
I looked on bike bandit and they had it listed so I bought a new one. Got an email saying they just found out from the manufacturer that this part is no longer being made. Wonderful.
Partzilla shows as unavailable. Looked on CL and ebay but nothing available rn. It's a heel toe shifter.
What are my options?

People are more violently opposed to fur than leather because it's safer to harass rich women than motorcycle gangs.

After market shift levers are available possibly...
AND of course there are Salvage Yards which MAY be beneficial too...

Good Luck,

something like a shifter Id just make myself. That could be welded easily enough but having the part rechromed would be pricey.

Yeah I don't know of any salvage yards around here that deal in motorcycles but I'll have to look around.
I considered after market but those are 2x the price of stock so maybe last resort

I thought about that, but someone told me it looks like cast iron and I don't think my dad's welder can do that (and he's in europe for a few weeks so I can't ask him lol).

I don't care so much for the chrome, I just want to be able to ride it lol

Consolidated Motor Sports in the Netherlands appears to have bought up a lot of old inventory OEM parts. For example, the last time I checked they actually had in stock a new original radiator for my 85 VT700... If I wanted to pay 800 Euros plus shipping.. But it might be worth a check if the others online don't pan out.

If it jams, force it. If it breaks it needed replacing anyway.

There are probably other cheaper options, but Amazon is usually quick :

Don't be afraid of the eBay recyclers though, I've always had good luck, I've got some cylinder heads and cams ordered on Thursday night, shipped Friday and FedEx says they will be showing up Monday from R&B Cycle Salvage in Richmond VA and I'm in Ontario, Canada.

Have a GOOD welder TIG weld it with SS rod. After welded cover the exposed metal (unplated due to process) with a silver paint or sandblast it and use VHT high heat of your color choice and bake it. Damn durable paint finish.




06' 1100 Spirit (sold 6/23/13)
71' CL 100 "Lil' Sista"
99' Valkyrie "Adele"
05' 1600 Vulcan "Ludabelle"

Ride Bell by "Yoman"

To everything there are exceptions.

Ain't even gotta be off the same bike...most shifters are Brand Universal.
Usually Honda cruiser fit all Honda cruisers, Yam's for Yams...
Junkyard is the best bet. Take your shifter, so you can match it up.
There's usually at least one motorcycle graveyard in each state...know where it is
In Cali there's like ten...

Knowing a good welder tends to help!!
They can zap that thing in a few minutes time.

Ride paranoid. Don't let anything distract you.
Keep the paint side up, wear the lid & leathers.
