Ironhead Sportster ribbed primary covers

French manufacturer EMD now offers its ribbed primary covers for '71-'76 and '77-'90 'Ironhead' Sportsters. 

Made from cast aluminum with CNC-machined gasket surfaces, these primary covers feature a raised rib design. They bolt in place of the OEM covers to "give any Ironhead Sportster a very 'analog' Old School look." Original hardware and gaskets can be used.
Note that the '71-'76 primary cover is not compatible with bikes equipped with a compensating sprocket; the '77-'90 primary cover comes with an additional early release ramp clutch kit that's provided for use on '77- '84 XLs. The '77-'90 primary cover can also be installed on early '86-'90 EVO 4-speed XLs where separately available clutch cable, Allen screws set, shifter axle, left crankcase chain tensioner and footpeg studs  are also installed. Available in raw, black, black cut and semi-polished finishes.
