WTB Ignition switch

Looking for a new or good ignition switch for a 96 VN800A. Don't want to pay $140 on FleaBay.

I did, but it's doing the same thing again. The white plastic housing inside the ignition switch was rubbing against the spring loaded contacts. Took it apart the first time, made some adjustments, all was good. Rode it all weekend, went to crank it this morning, same thing. Now just thinking to replace the whole switch assembly.

Sfair, I really want to ditch my stock controls on my handlebars, but I have only found stuff for Harley's. I have the left side figured out with some bar switches, but I need to figure out the throttle assembly. Do you know anyone who sells one to accept the stock Vulcan dual cables?
