Default Inspection covers

By going to “Ronnie’s H.D.” and checking their microfiche parts the part numbers for those , on a 1990, go back to 1986 & 1987 respectfully. Should be no problem.

The bolt patterns are different for the 1986-1990 4-speed primary than the later 1991-2003 5-speed primary.


If you can buy a 1990 cover, it will fit back to 1986...
If it's a 1991 cover, it will not fit earlier engines (will fit 1991-1993)...
The 1994-style cover will retro fit to the 1991-1993 engines.


The 1986-1990 cover uses a round primary chain inspection cover with a 'chevy symbol' indentation to unscrew it.
It also used a relatively small clutch adjustment cover, which also used the 'chevy symbol' tool.

On the 1991-1993 cover, the primary chain inspection cover is also round, but is mounted with two screws.
Likewise, the small clutch adjustment cover is round and mounted by two screws.

On the 1994-2003 cover, the primary chain inspection cover is still round using two screws to mount it.
But, the clutch adjustment cover is the large Derby Cover (4-bolt) that allowed the Ball&Ramp assembly to be removed without removing the cover.


Here's the Sportsterpedia section on the Factory Instruction Sheets:

Look for -J00037 - It refers to the retrofitting kit for using a 1994 cover on 1991-1993 engines...
http://sportsterpedia.com/lib/exe/fe...:is-j00037.pdf

Sheet -J00033 refers to Accessory Covers for the 1986-1990 models...
