Unless I'm having a brain fart no. You need to get into the clutch hub/basket area. I couldn't see mine until I pulled half of the clutch discs out.

I'd venture the vast majority 95%+ of all '04+ Sportsters on the road still have the grenade plate in there so chances are yours still does.

The swap is easy to do, I say get in there and get it out! I recently did the XR1200 judder spring setup with 2 extra steels and 1 thin friction and it's fantastic. Just like stock, no noises and no more grenade plate.

You’ve got a few options:
1. You can go with an aftermarket extra plate clutch kit such as Carbonite, E1, Barnett, etc.
2. You can buy or acquire 2 more stock steels and 1 friction and add them to what you have minus the spring plate.
3. You can do the XR1200 judder spring setup which adds 2 steels and 1 thin friction.

Be aware that some people (not all) report noise from extra plate kits. That’s why I personally went the XR1200 route since it has a judder spring which dampens things similarly to the spring plate therefore no noise and smooth as butter.

No right or wrong way to go just depends on what you want, your budget, and plans for the bike.

I was the first to do the XR1200 judder spring deal here AFAIK and did a writeup on how to do it at
http://xlforum.net/forums/showthread.php?t=2072418
Have about a year on mine, works great...the squeal I got with the two steel/one friction spring plate replacement is gone and clutch takeup is smooth.

You bet. I’m not too good at explaining things so here’s a couple resources that will do a better job than I can. As an FYI I think everything ran me around $60 US.

Edit: Bluto beat me to the link. He is the one to thank for the XR1200 option that I feel really filled a void in Sportster clutch options.

They're regular H-D parts; just buy them from a dealer.
