removing gear shift Lever

Hello. I crashed my 1000 in New Mexico. Im flying back to do repairs. My question is what size star bit does the shift lever take. Im taking tools and dont want to take a whole set of star bits. I think its a star bit and not an allen. Thanks in advance for your time. Mahalo

On my 2015 it is a 6mm hex to remove the footpeg mount. Spring clip to remove the shift lever off the spindle.

I don't know how much damage you have done but the foot peg brackets on the V2 are only cast and quite easily damaged, did you have a good look at them ?

I fitted 650 brackets because they are steel.
