Hi, does clutch hub nut washer P.N.2515-41A get peened to nut? Or stay flat? This is the second one I have,and both are without tabs to bend onto nut as were on other bikes I've had.

Use a small punch and bend the lock washer into the notches of the clutch hub nut in several places after nut is tightened.

You already got your answer here, I was just going to add that I buy the tabbed lock washers in bulk, and always use a new one instead of bending the tabs over again. They tend to break off, as you know because yours have already done so.

Actually his have not broken off as he is asking about a 45 nut, not BT which is entirely different. But as you say, best not to use them over for either model.
Thanks for honesty and knowledge, it's a unmeasurable help

You are living/doing two of my panhead fantasies.......working on your bike in the house and knowing how to do high quality work on your bike! I was hoping to just mess with my bike today but the garage is still too cold and I had more than normal aches after going on a 3 day trip for work and getting home late Friday night.
