'15 500EXC shift shaft broke!

Recommended Posts

Has anyone else experienced this?  I tried some searching, but didn't find the exact issue.  My dad bought his bike with 20 hours on it, and he and I have since rode a lot and put another 20 on it.  He was warming it up for an oil change, was coming to a stoplight and tried to downshift.  The shift shaft just broke loose and the shifter was pointing straight at the ground.  He limped it home, and long story short, the dealer said they've seen this before and a weld breaks inside.  Are you kidding me?!?!  I bet this won't be a cheap fix.
