98 Vulcan 1500, questions

Hi all, haven't been on a Kawasaki (or this forum) for a while now, but just picked up a Vulcan 1500. Runs beautifully, but gearbox is messed up, won't shift into gear at all. Previous owner tells me he lost first and second, but now it doesn't seem to be grabbing any cogs at all.

Weighing my options ... fix or part out. Anyone ever been into a gearbox on this model, can it be done w/o splitting the cases? And if I do part out, is it appropriate to post something here, or should it be in the general classifieds? Bike is in great shape, Jardine pipes and forward controls, nice Mustang seat with two backrests, otherwise stock. Thanks for any help. I'm in midwest USA, if anyone needs any major components please reply here or email me direct: robb.zimdars@gmail.com

Again, not sure if I'm fixing or parting out, but will need to make a decision soon.
