A friend of mine gave me a fancy lookin primary cover to put on my sportster. He has a softtail. It doesn't have the spring holder on the back side like my original primary cover. The bolts match up just fine, I was wondering if I could still use this without the spring holder. Thanks Rick
If there is a misspelled word its the dang computers fault.
the spring gives a little resistance for the clutch, without any groove for the spring to sit in, there is no reason to use the spring because it will slide away. It's a really light spring, I don't think it would cause any issue running without the spring but that's just my opinion.
^^^ What he said! That's what I was trying to think of last night. you could try to rig a spring holder on the inside of the derby cover if you really want, metal epoxy to hold on the spring onto the derby cover holding the adjuster in place would work.... wouldn't be ideal but would work. However, there is room for error doing it the REDNECK way, best to get the derby cover that has the holder in place
