Need a little help fixing shift linkage.

I had broke the head of the bolt to the piece that grabs onto the shifter shaft..

I'm trying to extract the bolt, but the swingarm bracket is in my way.. so I've decided to pull it off but is this a good idea? I went to get a socket to remove the swingarm bolt there but I'm not sure about this and its the only thing holding that left side bracket on. I'd take pictures but camera on phone isn't working.

Shift linkage is reverse thread on the gearbox side. Snapped it thinking it was a normal nut and bolt?

No the piece that slides on to the shifter shaft..the bolt that holds it on there tight, its head broke off cause I had it in the wrong spot

If you take out the swingarm pivot bolt, your swingarm WILL fall, so you need to suspend the rear of the bike first.

Looks like a sticky situation. Honestly, I'd cut that entire bracket off with a mini-hacksaw. Can't be more than $15.

On the swingarm...isnt it just a nut actually on both sides?

I may have been confusing but I'm thinking there is a nut on each side.

No, there is an axle. 27mm on the nut side, 22 on the bolt side, I believe.

Maybe some good penetrating oil and a gear/bearing puller might help?

I'd buy another one and cut it off with a hacksaw or a dremel tool with metal cutting wheel attachment

A shifter from an old CB750 fits right on there. The. You have GP shift on the. cheap. You may be able to cut a slot in what's left of the bolt and use a screwdriver to get it out.

You need to go OEM so you at least get the right spacing.

Part # 3. $40.

Are splines on the part still good?

If so just pick up an easy out and drill the busted bolt on center and draw the busted shank out. You will need a vice to hold it securely, and a drill bit that matches the easy out specs.

Hmmm ..... well scratch my idea.

I second G00gl3it's call on ordering the OEM setup.

Damn, you could of just sawed through the bolt itself and used a screwdriver to pry the bracket open enough to pull it off?

Tough to fit a hacksaw at that location. But a dremel would fit right in there. Too late now...

Good point. This'll be a great thread for future reference.

OP, good luck finding a new bracket. Let us know if you're able to pick one up for a decent price.

I've tried this on another dirt bike with a similar problem on a broken off kick-starter.

By the time you've pried it apart far enough to clear the bolt from the recessed groove on the shaft, you'll either A) snap the outer piece in half or B) really screw up the splines trying to slide the sucker off.

Didn't even think about the dremel, though, lol. Wouldn't do Helimech any good, it's too 'artsy n craftsy'.
