    You mean Corsa?? Yeah, can't wait that long. Need to get the bike to the mechanic tomorrow as well and can't ride the bike without the gear lever.

    Will give the wreckers a call tomorrow morning but if anyone has a spare lying around that would fit into an RS250 that would be awesome.

    I didn't mean it to come across with any attitude. Apologies if it did. Am trying to rig something up at the mo. Only thing Corsa opens on Wednesday through to Friday.

    Sorry, I should have said "What kind of biker attitude is that? " read: it was a p/t. Don't take the internet too seriously

    What I mean is, just somehow get it into gear at home, start it, and ride it in second gear or something? Heh.

    Can't really ride it. The lever is broken off just where you bolt on the peg. Looks like a welding job.

    As for my attitude, I was thinking if I could attach just about anything to get it into gear but alas nothing can be attached.

    It's broken off the foot peg. Hopefully will have good news that I can get it welded today. Can't seem to find any lever that fits which I find quite odd. There surely must be another bike with a similar lever design. Feels unnatural not to have the bike around...

    Every bike varys to be honest.

    i think your best option is to get it tig welded, make sure you go somewhere decent though... i got my footpeg hanger braket welded once...lightly clipped the wood gate back my bike out, not even at walking pace, and it snapped off again, looking at it it hadn't even penetrated into the metal at all.

    geez theres some cowboys out there.

    Wohoo, got the lever sorted with another lever. Not the greatest but works until the other gets welded. Am stoked!

    What was wrong with clamping a set of vice grips to the shaft?
