No mechanical skills here, but would a possible simple fix (temporary, maybe permanent) be some good electrical tape (or the new black Gorilla tape) wrapped over the entire rubber section. My 2007 Honda Rebel came to me that way 3 years ago (similar stalks) and one was wrapped with electrical tape. I never gave it a second glance so just went and looked at it and it is still fine. Granted, I have no idea what is wrong under the tape and have no need to look. That Gorilla tape is VERY sturdy stuff (the Rebel is just regular electric tape however). I use Gorilla tape over my home brew foot shifter extender which of course gets rubbed by my boot about 100 times per ride and it lasts at least 10 rides before a new application. Good Luck.
Forty years away from 2 wheel fun. Sure is great to be back smelling the roses!!!
