EDIT: Ignore this as I didn't accurately read the above post. Sorry
I am not positive, but I think you have to split the cases to replace the shifter shaft mechanism. If that is true, and the bike is otherwise not in need of repair, why not just weld the shifter to the shaft for a temporary fix. You can cut it off when time comes for rebuild. Maybe use a folding shifter so it does not break easy. Be sure to apply something wet to the case and surrounds so seal and case are not affected by torch heat.
Be skeptical and a critical thinker. Don't be fooled by fake patriots
