Ok, so I ended up breaking my left mirror off at the handlebar where it screws into the clutch assembly piece that's hooked to the handlebar. I'm going to need to replace that piece because I'm afraid the whole thing is going to break off at some point if I don't. Does anyone know where to find it, or what that piece if even called. I have googled all kinds of things, but can't find it.

That's it! You rock. Looks like part 4. I think I got lucky and part 3 is okay. Did you have a link on where to buy it?

Sorry, just saw the Service Honda part. I will call my Yamaha/Honda dealer when I get back home and price it out from them. Thank you.

Yep. Looks like retail is about $19 so I'd expect to pay that from a local place. I'd replace the bolts, too (not necessarily with the OEM bolts) since a lot of times they get bent a little in drops / crashes that damage the clutch perch.

What other work did you do? Maybe it's not related to the chain/sprocket work.

Subaru w/ trailer and WRR, ready for a trail ride. Was a good day, until I caught an unseen stump with my boot. While trying to limp through the single-track with a purple ankle, I found another stump with my shifter. Was able to gently bend it out with a tire iron so I could get out of 1st gear, but something doesn't feel right. Hope a new shifter will resolve?

Hopefully. It's possible that you bent or broke something internally by striking the shifter or by bending it back still on the shaft, but I'd doubt it.

Get thee a Driven Racing shifter.

I've broken that piece twice now Last time I ordered 2 to guarantee I won't break it again I also put folding mirrors on the bike.

Why Driven Racing over OEM? Driven is a nice looking piece; is there an improvement in performance?

Does knurled aluminum chew up boot toes, compared to the rubber tip on the OEM?

Thank you.

On Sunday Bluelightning (Dan) and myself took our WRR's out on a little DS ride to Cheaha, AL. There is a couple of nice rocky roads that we wanted to hit to get an idea on how the bikes will perform on our trip out to CO/UT later this year.

At the 1:30 mark you will see a Jeep come into the picture and you can here me talking to Dan on the Sena.

Dan called me on the Sena to let me know that there was a Jeep running down the trail with it's owner/driver in hot pursuit. Evidently the guy pulled over to take a pee and his Jeep started rolling away with his dog in control (at least the dog thought so).

Later in the video you can see Dan and I picking our way through a rough patch of trail. The camera never does the ride justice.

The Sena headsets can come in handy to warn other folks in the group when there is trouble up ahead. But then there are the times when you hear "oh shit, don't go this way" and you are wondering oh shit! WTF! I am right behind him.

I just ordered a driven shifter too. It was more than what I wanted to pay, but still cheaper than the $45(RMATV) for the stock shifter.

12 3D7-18110-00-00 SHIFT PEDAL ASSY $48.99 $45.07 Usually ships in 5-7 business days

I have seen mixed reviews on here about the Driven one, but my stock one bent, so I have nothing to lose.

An actual improvement or a perceived improvement? I think it shifts better now! Plus as noted it is cheaper... around $30-35.

Actually there is something to be said for an aluminum shifter over the stock soft steel one - the aluminum doesn't flex as much (even though the steel flex seems imperceptible) and the shifts do seem to be more crisp.

The knurling does not chew up boots.
