Broken aluminum shift rods WARNING

Im talking about the Al shift rod for the quick shifters. I have read about it before and it happened to me the other day. I was lucky enough to be near Sunnys shop. I was not hitting it hard when it happened either. It snapped and I had to get to Sunny's in 4th gear. The guys up there hooked me up with some tools and got me back on the road. I recommend replacing with steel ASAP if you have one of these. Not only did it break, it also broke off in the shifter threads when I was removing it. I have to buy a new one because it holding on by 3 threads at the moment.

Yep, same thing at MSR-H a few weeks back. The aluminum rods from Dynojet are not very strong.

I read your post. I thought of you as soon as it happened. Its because of your post that I knew what was wrong right off the bat.

I had the same thing happen to mine last year, and I made my own replacement part from an old bolt.
To this day, I still carry a standard shift rod to replace the quick shifter set up just in case.
