SRAM shifter broken. Is it fixable?

Found out that the right shifter was broken Is this savable? Is it possible to drill very small holes and screw some tiny screws in to reinforce it? Plus some super glue of course. What do you guys think? I'm totally never crashing again >

Might want to go to LBS first and see if there's anything SRAM will do for you. Unlikely, but worth a try. I'd just put a lot of superglue on it and see what happens. That stuff is strong.

I don't know about SRAM, but I believe with Shimano you can replace those lever body parts, since all the mechanisms are working fine. I can't imagine breaking the plastic will have you replacing the entire shifter.

Or you could just epoxy up the damn thing real good. That might work.

Send Sram an email with those photos. They can do more to solve your problem than we can.....
