the meany spring needs to be from a 2002 or 2003 only 1500 mean streak, beginning in 2004 they went with a weaker one, just put in the meany spring, you won't and don't need judge's washers, just the sprig

When I upgraded to the 'Meanstreak' spring (I think at that point the updated spring was not specifically for a Meanstreak but the superseded spring for all 1500 Vulcans) in my 01, I also replace the original single piece 'holder' with the updated 2 piece version. I think the point of the updated 2 piece holder was to beef up the clutch - similar to Judge's Washers - but retains the original slipper clutch functionality.

Edit: Here's a good write-up (for a Drifter) - although I'm not sure the part numbers are current:
