when you use the Versys linked shifter mechanism with the Versys footrest mounts, the loads are distributed more evenly around the shaft and onto the casting. they do break, but no where near as often as might be expected. here you have the conventional shifter and an unsupported shaft.
the cracked engine mount must be directly related to the bar design and mount, the first i've seen. i could be mistaken without having a look at it in person, but i did write..."also, the bike needs to be able to slide forward on the bars, not grab the surface, no matter what it is. if the bike can't slide, you could see damage that might not happen otherwise."
ya should be able to get it fixed up without difficulty.
