My experience with the 572XP and MS462

are you sure about that? Not sure if it would actually fit, or even why you would do that. You can order a set of more aggressive dawgs for the 572xp, there was one in the display area at the apf with them and a full wrap handle on it. 

And here in the pic, you can see the clutch cover of the 572 is not even drilled to accept the outer spike.

Looks same as My ms361 . You can drill it easy and there is the wee casting for the nuts to fit in. If you so desire.

Yes.  I'm sure about it.  I've ordered the felling spikes, and currently in the EU, there isn't the HD felling spikes.  

 

I'm just saying some of the other covers are interchangeable.

The spikes on this look remarkably like the ones on my 576xp, which don't require drilling anything. dawgs.thumb.JPG.771aed533d498de46e98f06a6f44bdd1.JPG

A 395xp has a chain break handle fixed to the side cover so definitely wouldn't fit. Possibly a 390xp/576xp side cover might fit but don't know why you would. Your saws are very shiney, do you cut much?

If I remember correctly the 572 has three cover options, the one as standard out of the box is a very good cover with good clearance not as wide as the "wrap" option but wider than the standard as fitted to 365/372/385/390 and 575/576/570. To fit the same felling spikes as those just listed all you have to do is with a bit of care and about 1.5mins with a flap wheel on a angle grinder is flatten the ridge at the front of the standard 572 cover and fit either the small outer spike or change them for the bigger HD ones as shown on the 576. The "wrap" option shown for the 572 is a silver HD 390 cover which the factory have given a new lease of life ! All the models I've listed have the same mounting points.

These pics are not from my saws.  These are saws that got shipped abroad to folks that were looking to get the saws before they are released.  All pics were taken when the saws were removed from the boxes.  

 

I use Dolmar saws for work saws.

How does one do this? :)

It's a simple piston and cylinder swap.  The 64cc and 79cc have an identical chassis and fuel system.  

 

You can order the upgrade kit through Makita.  Some models have different top covers that may need modification for the decomp location.
