RH Control Swap

Hey guys, just joined up! I just picked up a 1987 KLR 650 which is in need of a lot of love. But cannot wait to get this bike on the road! My first question is, It is nearly impossible to find a RH starter/kill control online. There are a ton for the 08 and up but none really for 87-07. Has anyone swapped over a 2nd gen style to the first gen? Looks like it should work, theres really only 4 wires on both. Thanks!!!!!

Thanks Back2Kawi, I appreciate the link. I found this one too on partzilla. Different part # and its stated that it is for the 85-99. Same price too so I'll probably get this one from partzilla. Thanks again!!
