There are many threads about left side damage and they almost all get into shifter woes. Here are some OEM costs.
The shifter arm is about $140 new. Likely you sheared the 6mm pin bolt, because it is designed to do that. Aout $12, save the rubber.
If you have bent the shaft, then a new one is about $116.
Case removal necessitates a gasket. Figure $25 for gasket and some supplies. if you have a cycle shop do this, I am not sure how many hours, but it is a pretty simple operation if you can get to the e-clip without removing the whole clutch. Hopefully less than 3 hours labor. $300 maybe.
Replace the shaft seal for a few dollars too. Worth it for sure.
Even if you needed a new polished cover at $320, you are still well under that scary $1200 dledinger threw out.
Forchetto has a thread on $12-$20 shift levers that work from Hondas. very helpful guy he is.
Good luck.

Love the wind

This happened to me to. I parked on a slight slope and walked away from the bike and it followed me as I walked away and fell over behind me. Forgot to put it in gear!
I used the sparkplug socket and ductape on the remaining stump of the clutch lever and that worked fine for the next two day of riding before I got a new lever.

Sorry to hear BCTriumph. I had a little incident recently at what we call Devils Elbow. This is a switch back on Woy Woy Rd on the central coast NSW here in Oz. The road was greasy from the night befores rain. Going up the hill with my wife on board we just rounded the corner in 1st gear luckily, to find the rear let go & down we went. No one hurt thankfully. My Speedy suffered a few scratches only on the exhaust thanks to my HARDBAGS. NEVER LEAVE HOME WITHOUT THEM! I leave the bags on 24/7 now as a result. I have also put an engine dresser bar on for a bit more insurance.
