    Changed the oil in my 2005 Ridgeback and found a problem. My 117 doesn't have a tappet screen. Had the spring though. Do all of the 117's have that screen or did the previous owner remove it?

    It should have one, I think. Here is a schematic of the oil pump for my 2008–pretty sure they are the same. A1101C6F-10B4-4BB3-82B7-54479808709A.jpeg

    All Shovel head, and Evo engines have the tappet screen and spring in the case.

    Thanks for the lead on getting the screen. I was told this bike had the cam updated, but was really surprised not to have the screen in place. I have the notorious ticking head problem so I am planning on a complete teardown inspection when I replace the heads. I guess the current heads are a time bomb just waiting to go off. S & S ain't cheap but it's the right thing to do if I plan on keeping the Ridgeback...Thanks again for the help.
