Replace all of the derby cover screws with a better quality hex head screw.
I replaced all mine with socket head screws that match the screws on the rest of the primary.

First time I had to take the derby off my 10 I snapped off two Snap-On bits trying to get the stupid tiny torx screws out. I ended up drilling the heads off of 3 of them (like above) since some idiot put them on - in a bad mood - with god-knows-what.

I then did about the same, hardware store, allenheads, never a problem since.

Scarlet Red 2010 Road Glide Custom named Trixie - She's a flashy little minx..
Basic black 1981 Tour Glide Classic named Alice - She's a sleeper project.
