Yep, vise grips are useful and handy to have!! I always have a set in my backpack when on the dirtbike. The ones I bought yesterday were for work, but the pair I used on the shift lever may just stay with the Vulcan now!
And what an unusual thing it was to have no feeling of the lever as I tried to shift outta first. Kinda like your mind is saying it's gotta be there, but your foot still isn't touching anything no matter how many times ya try!
Luckily it turned out to be an easy fix to get back on the road.
