    It looks good.but I ground the clip down about half the thickness so it would seat I just hope it doesn't bend or throw the chain out of line can't see it unless u remove the clip. I'll take some pics tomorrow. Is there a part # for the original bearing . someone had a elec.start only drum with all the kicker parts still behind it .what a mess

    You didn't perchance buy that bearing off fleebay? Had a carried in springer neck stem to make fit a Yamahaha the fleebay bearings he brought varied .0025" on the bore and the one that was closer to spec for the bore was wider than spec. These Chinesey deals sometimes require Vaseline.
    Wonder how much spring is left in that clip? Think I'd grind a little off the bearing before the clip. If the bearing is right it would be best to figure whether the snap ring slot or the bore depth was wrong and have whichever cut to spec.

    Those are Taiwan made by V-Twin Mfg.....

    They shot windage .... Not made to Harley's specks .... Wait till you try to load the clutch plates in it....
    Damn near going to need a hammer to drive them in....
    (Close but no cigar)

    I have tried to use them before ... To many fitment problems, gave up, sent it back and hunted up a used one...!!
