Unless they've changed something, you can remove the upper shock mount bolt by removing the seat and looking for a large nut. Take this nut off and the top mount will come out of the frame.

I have a 2009 harley sportster 1200c can i change the derby cover with out removing the oil


Yes, although I don't work on the later model bikes, I do believe you can do this because you have to take the derby cover off to adjust the clutch and you don't have to drain the oil to do that.

Good Luck
