Hi guys, Im new to the site, Im also a new rider. I just got my CBR bout 2 weeks ago, and it will be my first bike ever... So in having a new bike, and just learning all the procedures and saftey dos and don't of riding. I did something stupid like this, and now im dead in the water so to speak. So first off. im not even sure if im correctly calling the part i broke by its actual name...?

So this was the best way i could figure out to show you what part i need replaced. The part that broke is the number 3 the arrow is pointing at. So my question is, does anyone know what that part is actually called, and where in the hell can a buy a new one?!?! Thank you for your help, I just want to get back on the road again ASAP!!

Not sure where you're located, but there are a lot of bike shops online that have parts listings by pictures like that. I believe revzilla is a big one in america (I'm in Australia so not sure). If you have a look for parts online you'll be able to find it.

Any Honda motorcycle dealer can order it for you (they won't likely have it in stock).

Find the actual Honda part number for that part, and start looking around.

If you haven't taken a Basic Rider Course yet, I would asap. There are too many things to learn by yourself all at once for a new rider to be safe on the street. You need to have the basic skills and know how to operate the cycle without thinking before venturing out.

Well, that #3 part is just rubber cover over ball-joint. Unfortunately in this case, ball-joint is integral part of #1 gear-changer arm assembly ( 24710KYJ000 ). It's staked in place to the arm rather than bolted on.

However, in cases like this, I've just drilled out the busted ball-joint from arm and replaced with generic ones. NOTE: there's left and right-hand threaded versions. Make sure you identify threading on yours. I always carry couple spare ones in toolbox when going to track. 6mm Male Female Ball Joint Rod End Bearing M6 90 Degree SQ6RS 190459650939 | eBay

Also, make sure you didn't break #9 tie-rod inside ball-joint as well. In which case, you'll need another tie-rod as well.

No, drill out mounting of old ball-joint from behind gear-changer arm. Then you install new ball-joint by putting threaded section through hole in arm and tighten nut behind it. Then install tie-rod into other end.

Examine threading on broken end and figure out if it's left-hand threaded or normal right-hand threads (use right-hand rule to determine rotation and direction). Or test by threading regular M6 nut onto end of tie-rod. Left-hand threaded ball-joints are extremely difficult to find. I usually just replace both ball-joints with normal right-hand threads with new tie-rod. Adjustments are more difficult, but I only need to do it once every 20-years.

Be sure both ball-joints have equal amounts of threads engaged. And adjust length of tie-rod so both arms that ball-joint attaches to is 90-degrees to shift-rod. One goes on gear-change arm and one goes on pedal arm.
