Long time member but rarely post here. I've had my '07 S4RS since 2013 and never really had any issues. I was out on a short ride yesterday and while downshifting coming to a stop the gearshift rod just snapped in half. I was able to find a small metal wire on the side of the road that I slid inside the shifter rod which allowed me to upshift and then I had to use my heel against the front of the actual transmission rod to downshift carefully. Not ideal but good enough to limp the bike home. I've got already got a new shifter rod ordered for $22 but I'm just curious if anyone else has experienced this. I've never heard of this part just snapping in half. The bike has 33,xxx miles.
Pics attached for reference, including gratuitous bike pic.
