broken shift shaft
I have a broken shift shaft, inside the block, of my 2006 750. Went to shift from 2nd to 3rd and the lever just fell away from the bike. This will be the 3rd major job on this bike and the second time to break it down all the way (1st was to replace the fried electrical system). In my opinion, a newer bike should never need this much work. Anyway, here's my question: When the shop broke it down to replace the stator, etc. when I got the bike back, the shift lever was higher that before the repair. Quite a lift to shift into higher gears, but I got used to it. 2000 miles later, the shaft breaks. Is there any chance the old repair caused the new disaster? I'm debating whether it's worth it to even fix this bike after this many problems or sell is as a project bike. Thanks.
