mostly first gen. i already tried that.

what i want to know is will a shift lever from some other bike fit?
This listing shows a number of bikes that will fit that shifter lever so I would imagine that a stock lever from any of those bikes listed would be interchangeable. Here's the listing. Scroll down to see the different bikes that this 2nd gen lever will fit. :)

This one below shows that it'll fit a SV650 2nd gen and a Hayabusa 1300.

Oh, in the meantime...the bolt method works. Drill out the post that the rubber shifter sits on and use a bolt. Place rubber shifter back on over bolt.

My shift lever broke two weeks ago. I remember reading something about it here and my friend did a temporary fix with some kind of bolt.

I drilled out the shift arm and put a bolt through with some plastic spacers over the bolt. I did this about 9 months ago and don't plan to ever replace it with the stock shift lever. The bolt sticks out further and is much more comfortable for shifting. I planned on this only being a temporary fix... But I like it too much to spend money to 'fix' it.

See part 30 for OEM SV650s shift assembly

I think Oneida Suzuki is cheaper but I couldn't quickly find it over there.
$80 for that, or $45 for a folder:

I've got that on mine and like it a lot. I've heard the silver finish can wear onto your boot, but the black anodized hasn't done that over the past 6 months or so.

I did this about six years ago and haven't seen the need to "fix" it. Works great.

Same here. I drilled/tapped the broken lever and installed a bolt with the factory rubber sleeve several months ago, and it's worked great ever since.
