Replacing rear final drive 2005 vStar 650.

Can someone please help me? I need a new rear final drive for my 2005 vStar 650. The splines on the main pinion gear are shot. Ive read that a virago xv 535 final drive can be swapped with it. Are there any other swaps? The 1100 vStar rear ends are much cheaper. Can I use the 1100? Any tips are appreciated. Thanks.

Only another 650 or the fairly rare 535 will be a direct swap. 1100 is completely different.

I see that. What year 535? Is there any way to modify the entire thing? Convert to chain or belt?

I think any year. If i remember right it's not a direct swap but putting the 535 internals into the 650 housing/drive. Check over on the 650ccnd forums as i think there is a write up on itin the modifications section.
