7. Tricky H-D Sportster primary cover


Michelle DiSalvo is this really good flat-tracker from Lodi, California. She was complaining that her Sportster clutch cable, since it enters the cases down there right on the bottom, was digging in the dirt and getting all bunged up. So we rotated it up to where it’s out of harm’s way. A bonus of that is now a Buell cable is long enough to fit, a much better cable and lever. And while I was at it, we cut out a window so you can turn the engine over to set the timing with a T-handle, instead of the old pain-in-the-ass way of having somebody turn the rear wheel while you try to find the timing mark, which is just stupid time-consuming.
