I think you're talking about the shifter pawl shaft where the shifter linkage connects. It's called a shifter pawl shaft. You can buy a replacement either OEM or aftermarket. Jim's is probably the best one on the market these days.

To change the shaft is a MAJOR job. You must pull the entire primary drive, including the primary chain, clutch assembly, and the inner primary. The starter must come off. The top of the transmission and shifting mechanism. The exhaust system must come off and the clutch release mechanism off the right side of the transmission. Then, the "trap door" with both the mainshaft and the countershaft of the transmission must come out. Then, you can get the shifter pawl shaft out. Not a job for a beginner unless you are a master mechanic on something else. Even then, I'd advise the purchase of a service manual. There are some special tools involved but they're are various torque wrenches.

Good Luck

Are you talking about the shifter lever that sits in the splined area on the shaft? If yes then replace the nut and bolt with quality stainless steel and remember to use some lok-tite on that puppy. Also rmember to clean the splined areas on both the shaft and the lever. The lever splines may be goobered up and need to be filed clean or you may need to pick up a new shifter lever.
