I don't think the earlier K ones fit,

They had a narrower clutch and from memory they won't fit on a Sportster.

I could be wrong, I'm old and forget a lot of stuff.

Hi Mike, I really want the primary cover with Sportster written on it as I am trying to keep it period correct. I realise it will cost me a bit extra in international postage but there is not a lot of vintage parts over here so I am always getting parts sent from the States to Australia.

I don't mind paying for the right cover, the one on eBay has done a lot of work, wear marks on the words and its been repaired. I guess what I am saying I want one in real good condition.
