Here at Vaseline's Press And Hold Tattoo Paper Trail&Rake, we have a sacrificial brown paper bag, cut so our inner primaries show a bolt hole pattern to output shaft seal hole, and dyno ring smeared on said touch points to the paper trail; we then flip the bag over, tattoo the long guide line, and line up those greased transfers against the OEM of other said brand.

Lift brown paper bag and slide it up under your shirt. Rake on over to that HD dealer and ask for an outer primary gasket and an inner cover for how old is me bike? Any evo inner primary cover will do. Hey look over there! And you already placed the 99cent store box of cookies at the end of the counter, pull out the paper trail, OE gasket over the bolt holes... pre-internet question solved. OE gasket called the distance points.

Signed,
Profile my parts is parts you fucking copy cat it WORKS! Oh shit, you party pooper you, topper.

OK, I'll buy the pri-gasket. Sorry, this was for display only. Let me get you one. Hello, 89th shipping container waiting in line out in Long Beach? I have a guy here that is going to swim out for a gasket; can you pull one out of our order? He doesn't look like he'll make it, but you never know withese is guys.
 
Anything is possible. It would take a significant amount of work. You would have to alter the transmission mount in the frame, and change the starter if you went with the HD primary.
There isn't a brand with right side pulley transmission that can be plug and play?

If you can't add something relevant to the topic just don't respond...

My apologies. The relevance meant for interchange purposes, i.e.; a two-dimensional against the three-dimensional on the parts counter if no one had the answer... we start from scratch with the 'possible.' There is my answer. Chopper generic blueprint reengineering a beautiful bike.

For your next relevant question, I don't know? Was there a kit back in the day for the plug and play? Topper might be in the know. And say there was a kit. Think about it. I'm a new [years back-think] owner right out the factory door, and I want to re-engineer to the left side, the demand is high, yes or no for a kit back then.

Stay Stock and the patina off it.

I want to leave it stock, I will no fix what isn't broken, this is in case of in the next years I have some problem with one of those parts to know what my options are.
The prices from a primary and the transmission for BD is high so I want to know with that price what can I put from other brand in the bike or with the same price I could get something better.

Noted. I now see what you're doing. It comes down to money. See if this makes sense. Let's get this out of the way. It's the same old tooling up; the war toys on the field and tank thread pitch A can't screw into tank metric-B, and then there is the knockoff industry after the war and you're stuck.

This is what you need to think about are two approaches on something like this.
1. I am the caretaker of a bike with limited patina and is bone stock. It's this side of a museum piece.
a. Then I only buy OEM.
b. And I buy it now is what I can find in OE.
c. I am going to hold onto this for the rest of my life.
d. Time flies so who, what, where is BD 10 years from now but dwarfing to the E-Ride.

2. I'm getting old, I'm not financially stable to afford pristine OE and horde them.
a. Do I really need to hold onto a nickel and dime bike that dwarfs into an aftermarket bike and becomes worthless?
b. Maybe I have a bug up my ass and what was I thinking, even HD parts go obsolete.
c. That's it, I'm going to park this in the living room and look at it.
d. For the price of a BD part, I'm going to find the same bike now and spare parts of every piece on that bike is my living room parts supply. F-those prices!

Actually - I did it, rather Eddie Trotta did it for me. 06 K9 and I wanted to do a re-paint & new powder coat on the frame, so when we took it all apart he tweaked the trans mount to fit standard EVO. I was not sure if it would work so did not want to spend $4K on a baker so we threw in a rev-tech 6. I think the trans was about $1400. That was about 9 years ago and the tranny is far better than the stock baker I had. Very smooth and trouble free. At same time we did a BDL open primary, hydraulic clutch, removed the EHC and direct wired the bike to start with the key. Not a difficult job and most of your cost will be in the tear down and build back in terms of hours. Took him 30 minutes or less with the torch to make the change.

Pictures of that by any chance? Love to see it!

You have any photos of that?

Is this an LGBQ thing? I don't think I get it.
Haha! No I don’t think it’s anything like that! Sometimes Sven or Seven will reply to a question with a answer that just leaves you scratching your head! Pretty sure that’s why andrelouro88 made that comment. I appreciate Sven’s insight on most subjects but on occasion I am left scratching my head also. Live & Learn! :chopper:

I personally like option #1.

I would like to see pics as well!

For me the this is the achilles heel of this big dog bikes that you cannot put other primary and transmission brands in it without change the frame, and that is why I want to see how you did it because if I have a major transmission failure I want to have other options.
