Unhappy Doohickey

Finally got around to doing my doohickey yesterday. Mine was broken. The whole top half of the old one is missing. My klr is a 2006 with 3400 miles.

On the bright side you now have a new doohickey which won't give you any problems. Did you buy the bike new? Sounds like someone over tightened it a bit to break it so soon. Are you trying to get out the missing piece?
