Has anyone ever had this happen to their front fork?

If you are jonsing to ride, and want to roll the dice, I would just put it together without, and double up the clicks in the other fork leg, so you get your over all rebound damping preference back.. .it would not be good, but that is how almost all mountain bike forks work.... spring on one side and damping circuits on the other. Moto forks are not designed for that kind of unbalance, but a little bit should not hurt.
The other thing you could do is go to the hardware store, and buy some steel or aluminum rod, and cut it to length to make your own replacement. I would be very precise about the length though.... take the last 0.1" off with a file so it matches the rod in the other leg to within 0.005".
