Default not to say it cant be done

The old style cover can be fitted to to a 77 up engine the cover must be machined and a new pinion bushing fitted. Someone has a thread covering the swap and mods required http://xlforum.net/forums/s...gneto+retrofit

Mag can go on the 45 as originally intended. Wiring is a pain but not expensive, I'll fit a plain clutch lever and wire horn and headlight flasher to the right-hand side pod. No indicators, the bike doesn't presently have them and a 1978 model doesnt need them in UK. No electric start, because the bike doesn't have one anyway. Batteries aren't cheap but they are just a thing you have to have.

Ok, press on.
Wise decision

Hello a mag just fell into my lap and I'm working on a chopper '72xlch. I was looking for a com cover that would allow me to run the mag. Is anyone holding a modified cover or could direct me to someone who could machine one for me? Thanks

Or at the very least drop me some detailed info how to do it.
