GL1200 drive shaft damper spring

Hi all,
I have fitted a 1500 drive into my 1200, should I still use the damper spring that's at the rear of the drive shaft or leave it out? The GL1200 is 1985, the 1500 rear drive is 1998.

The 84 didn't have that spring and works well without it.
Your call.

Advise given here is free and comes with no warranty "Caveat emptor"

I was being stupid I guess thinking that it may cause a problem with the 1500 FD
