Default Bent Shifter - need recommendations for replacments

Laid my bike down up in the malibu canyons. it was pretty awesome.

damage is pretty limited due to the frame sliders. some scuffing and a crack on the upper fairing, other than that the shift lever bent. Still drivable, but i'd like to replace it.

what do you guys recommend as a replacement? aftermarket or oem?

how is the install? i figure it can't be too bad right?

install is very easy and straight forward

that one you linked is a folding aftermarket shift lever. i have the same one in black and love em. what he's saying is get the rear brake lever as well so they match......chrome and folding.
