So is that what I need ? It's not the main shaft. That is on the secondary shaft. I've never had one apart before so I realy know nothing on this one lol

Yes, you need third gear on the layshaft, look very closely at third gear on the mainshaft though because it may have damage also, and since you've had pieces floating around in there make sure all of your bearings are in good shape and look for damage on the rest of your gears.

Thanks captain for the help !
This bike has shifted hard from 3rd to 4th since I've had it, I'm guessing this is the timely results of that hard shift ? Will clutch disc n upgraded single spring over the two spring set up fix that hard shif or is that caused by something else ?

Unless you have lots of horsepower I've found that the two light springs makes for a much better clutch, the single Barnett is really strong and not very friendly to your left hand. As far as the shifting goes look for wear on the lugs on the gear sides and wear on the shift shaft and forks, too much play makes for problems. When you get the new gears assemble the trans and put it in a soft jaw vise with the trap door and go through the gears(including neutral), check your clearances(get a Harley manual if you don't have one) and engagements to make sure all is well before putting the assembly back into the bike. Look for wear in your clutch basket and hub and don't make the primary or the drive chain too tight, and I like to use Harley Formula Plus in my Sportster transmissions.

I've always used revtec motor n primary oils, and I don't have a manual on the motor yet but yes I do need one.
And a dumb question, after looking n thinking, the trans is sealed from motor case, has anyone ever cut the trans off the motor n just run a regular separate trany ?

Revtech oil is fine, I've seen a K model cut in half with a shovel trans behind it, unless you're a machinist and a welder it's a ton of fabrication to spend money on. Used manuals are pretty easy to find...
