Might be time for a new shift lever- and one with a pivoting shift stud.

The good news about the OEM shifter peg is that it will break off without Pretzel-ing the rest of the shift lever, or, worse, damaging your transmission. The linkage rod is also "sacrificial" in this sense.
I found that out the hard way, on a dirt road about a year ago.
I repaired my shifter peg by hollowing out the peg, threading the inside using a screw (it's aluminum after all), then bolting the peg back to the lever body. Used that for a few weeks while I waited for a replacement OEM lever.
I probably could have kept riding with the repaired lever, but it seemed prudent to have a shifter peg that had not already been broken once.
Vstroma sells a shift lever for the DL650 (DL650 - Folding Foot Shift Lever
) with a foldling peg. However, I don't think it would fit a DL1000, at least not without some modification. The vendor may know.
Another option: Tusk does make a folding shifter peg thingy: https://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/p...lacement-tip-p
Obviously, some re-shaping of the factory shift lever would be required for that to work, but given that it's made of aluminum shouldn't be too tough.
I kinda want to buy one & try fitting it to my old, spare shift lever, given that I already broke off the original peg.
