@#!%ing gear shifter broke!
I was taking the bike (2000LT) out for a ride today, and got to my next door neighbor's house, put it in neutral and on the side stand to talk to my neighbor. When I went to shift back into first, the bolt that holds the shifter to the gear box (or whatever the hell it is) broke in half, rendering the shifter completely useless. Luckily, the bike was in neutral, so with my neighbors' help, I was able to get it back to my house and up the driveway and into my garage.
Now I have to order a new bolt assembly (the piece that has the screw with bolts on either end in swivel ball joints). Also going to have to figure out a way to get the other half of the bolt out of the piece inside the bike. May have to drill it out.
Anyway, big drag. Just wanted to vent.
