Stuck in gear / Bent Shift Rod?

So my niece knocked my bike over and got it stuck in gear. i brought it to a shop and they said it was a bent shift rod and that i needed to drop the entire motor to change it. They wanted like $4,000 which sounds crazy to me. Then one of my friends who worked as a ducati mechanic said that he doesnt need to drop the motor to fix it. Has anyone else encountered this? i barely dropped it. i mean it didnt even scratch. Do you need to drop the motor to change the shift rod?
its a 2013 ducati hypermotard evo sp 1100. Am i crazy to lete someone other than ducati work on it or are they trying to rip me off? thoughts? i live in NYC btw

You don't have to drop the motor on the super bikes you just drain the oil then open up the engine side cover (that take a special puller on the alternator side. If you have access to all the bolts on the side cover I would think you do not have to.

If your'e in a hurry you can get away without dropping the oil - just lay the bike over.
