6MT shifter adjustment or repair?

The stock shifter on our '07 6-6 has an issue mostly with 5th to 6th upshifts. Pulling straight back on the lever will get you 4th gear just as often as 6th. It works OK if you always think to pull it a bit to the right when shifting but if your are even slightly distracted you will probably get 4th gear by mistake.
Anyone have any experience making adjustments or repairs on these shifters? I know there are aftermarket shifters available but I would rather not spend big bucks fixing this. I assume the problem is the shifter and not the cables or transmission.

I've noticed the same thing on my car, but personally it's not really an issue. I think it's just the way it's set up, and since you'll never do a 5th-6th quick-shift (6th gear is only a cruising gear) I'd probably just train yourself to move the shifter a bit to the right as you go into 6th gear.

I've never heard of any aftermarket parts that actually change the shift pattern, any of the existing shifter upgrades just tighten things up and shorten the throws.
