I'm guessing you altered the design, then?
I ended up moving across the country soon thereafter, and on the cross country trip, snapped a shifter rod in half. Luckily, I was only a few miles from PipeWorx, a motorcycle customizer in Austin, TX (www.pipeworx.com). There, Matt Quinn re-welded the rod (including a nice triangular gusset), and even refused my payment. He finally accepted $80, but what's more, earned my trust and admiration.
