    I just found an 06 with 20k on the clock for $2500. It has everything (ECU, rectifier, wiring) but the gauges and header. It looks pretty clean to me.

    I am hoping that my handlebar switches and my key ignition from my 750 will plug into the 06 harness. If not they are pretty cheap from what I've seen

    that seems to be a reasonable ebay price for that, I paid $2600 for a gen 1 with 2500 miles on it did not include the wiring or intake.
    it is possible to find them for less, a friend bought a running bike for $1800 and sold the wire harness, intake and his blown up engine to me for $500, I was planning to rebuild but with the cost of a crank, pistons rod gaskets that would have been around $2000 so I just bit the bullet and bought the ebay unit.

    Not as of yet. I inquired about it to see if the bike was modified at all and it had a stretched swing arm. To me, that indicates that it MAY have been ridden pretty hard. My OCD and thinking too much to pull the trigger yet on that one. LOL

    I am on my second Busa powered sand rail, there are issue with the tranny Pop out of 1st gear under a lot of Power but dont let it be a show stopper, there is a Guy in SLC Scott Horner @ Heads up Performance. He is a world speed record holder and sells under cut gears for a couple hunderd bucks, I have done them in both my cars and its not bad at all. I have a lot of extra parts if if you need something hit me up.

    Transmission, or final drive?

    I have an RPM fnr box as a final drive. I had a 13-60 tooth sprocket and chain setup before. Worked fine, reverse is a blessing though for pulling into camping spots, and backing off edges of the wrong dune.

    I had to put in a back cut gearset a year ago. I had Bill Robibson do the work to all the gears. 1st and 2nd are not back cut in the first gen, and offroad use chatters the faces of the dogs. Everyone said I must have rounded the corners of 2nd gear, but the corner looked great, the dogs had enough surface damage to cause a slight angle in the wrong direction. 1st gear wasn't far behind. Once the shift fork couldn't hold it, she bent, and that was the end. I do use 1st and second gear really hard in the sand, and there is plenty of vibration traveling through the drive train.

    I put in solid shift fork shafts too. The stock ones are hollow, and have been known to accelerate the problem.

    The only issue now is that neutral is tough to get into when stopped. The angle of the dog face requires the gears to rotate in the opposite direction. With a cold, grabby clutch, it's tough. Popping into neutral on deceleration is easy though.
