07 Vstar 1100 New Owner

Hello, new member from Birmingham AL. Just bought a 07 1100 for bail money for this guys wife. The only issue with the bike is the starter clutch is gone. My main question is what's the cheapest starter clutch kit I can get to get the bike rolling?

I bought this starter clutch in March (it was $84 when I got it) and installed it in a day's work... The cheaper ones from eBay are usually frowned upon, but for the price I'd rather take my chances spending $90 rather than $400+ for OEM. Worst case scenario I'll just have to take it apart & do it again. It's not like I paid a shop to do it & it comes with a 1 year warranty, but it's been rolling strong ever since.

Thanks that's exactly what I was looking for. I'll give the ebay one a try.
