Since you're on your third one, why not take one of the broken ones and get the folding tip from a dirtbike shifter welded onto it? Your local wrecker should have a few. If that's not an option, various companies (e.g. EMGO) make alloy shifters for the different brands of dirtbikes, and one of those is a LOT cheaper than a new V-Strom part, or the Vstroma one, come to that.
