Mickey, it can be done on an 04 t/c because I did it but it was a struggle. The old spring comes out easy enough but the new one is tough to get in because you have to put the big end in first vs the small end coming out when removing the original one. YOu have to flex the spring slightly which is tough. use gloves. If I had to do it again I would just pull the primary unless I just changed fluid. I have had my primary off 3 times and still use the original gasket with no leaks. ps thanks for the photos they were great. jeffMickeys-Customs said:Just picked up a screamin eagle clutch plate. I heard that this can be installed by just taking off the derby cover. Has anyone done this or do I need to remove the primary cover?

Make sure your clutch cable is well lubed. It will help ALOT.msocko3 said:Also get ready for the big squeeze. To me even with easy pull ramps that sucker was nasty in stop and go traffic.
My '06 comes stock with an "Easy Pull Clutch" ramp kit thing, so my results are a bit squeued from others. . But when I added the SE clutch spring with my 95" kit, the pull on the clutch lever was horrible. I'm a pretty strong guy and my hand would start to hurt in traffic or after holding the clutch in for a while or after in situations where I would have to shift up/down alot. I'm also the type of rider who uses the clutch alot in slow speed manuvers. Was on the verge of removing the SE spring when someone on this forum suggested lubing the clutch cable... WOW what a difference. I now have no problems in traffic, at lights or anywhere. I love it.Mickeys-Customs said:That much of a difference?
