I don't know about the first gens. But since you already have it off it's better safe then sorry. That's just the way I would look at it.

better to fine wire weld all the way around all three rivets, stronger. also, loose, rattling springs can be fixed, carefully tap tangs down not binding spring until spring no longer rattles. dont just beat it down tight, the spring must float between the backing plate and hub absorbing shock and transferring power . thats their purpose. just enough to eliminate rattling. a good welder can spot weld the tang corners , not welding the spring or binding it. engine power is trying to push these springs outward, through the metal plate, bending the tangs out. if you bang your ten, most do, this is a must do. sloppy, rattling springs are the first sign of a problem that progresses to your hub coming thru cover or cases. you may see hairline cracks in the corner of the tangs from stress where the tang has been stretched, this is where you spot tack the tangs repairing them also. if you hear your clutch rattling at idle, this is your problem. loose baskets are not uncommon, they are common, i do both to my bikes, good preventive maintenence and disaster insurance.

Great info Gazx10. My bike is down at the moment due to a broken chain last week so, I'll be doing some maintenance while I can't ride it.
