Stuck at work with broken Ninja 250 shifter

So my Ninja 250 shifter just came off and now I'm stranded at work.

Anyone have any expertise on this? Can I rig something up so I can at least ride home?

Thanks for any help!

It looks like you lost the screw with the bolt? I have an extra one at home.

Unfortunately, didn't catch it during T-CLOCS. Thankfully, it broke just before I turned into my parking lot so I was able to push the bike in.

I'd love to buy the part from you if you have what I need. Please PM me your location. Thanks!

Put a vice grip on that shaft and limp home carefully.

Walked a 1/4 mile down the road and ended up finding the bolt and washer in the left lane! Bike's toolkit had an Allen wrench, thankfully, so I was able to put it back on.

Thanks for all the quick help everyone. I'll definitely be giving a lot of bolts the Locktite treatment tonight.

Very happy that I found it! Looks like I'm missing one of the two washers though (92022A, I believe). Anyone know a good source for it?

Agree. Go to a hardware store for one that matches. No biggie

Haha lucky you found it.

Any right size washer from hardware store will work.

Usually that bolt is very tight...amazing how it came loose and felt off.

good, you were able to find it, i was going to reccomend going out and FINDING Those pieces!

I would also suggest blue loctite, not red, I havent owned a ninja250 in several year sbut i have to remove my shift rod to do certain maintenance on the bike and blue loctite works just fine for my shift rod. Red loctite is for permanent use. things you are not going to be removing for the life of the bike (all things equal)
