I still haven't installed mine yet. Not 100% sure I'm gonna yet either. I'm still riding the bike so haven't had it back on the operating table. I'll be doing a few other things to it this winter so I'll decide then if it goes back on

Rob, I'm going to take my primary off over the winter to see how it looks.
So far it's been running great.
I'll keep you posted and let you know what I find when I get the primary off.

Thanks for the reply Mike U. Between the comp and lifters and air cleaner oil and bad mileage and whatever my mind thinks is wrong with the bike, I'm about to go nuts. I'd like to be able to work on something and have it stay fixed.... I wish I was one of the Harley riders who rode and had no idea about all the things going wrong at any given time!

It does suck when you hear something "different" and you think the bikes gonna fall apart under you. I always get that uneasy feeling

Anything new here?? Put a new quieter exhaust on my bike over the weekend and now the compensator noise has reared it's ugly head. Gotta do something, and its not gonna be a HD product.

2015 RGU CVO........under continuous change......

About the only thing new for me is I moved the box to another position on the floor. My 2014 Comp still clicks like a pair of dice, but works so I have no desire to pull the comp, again! I'll be changing the Primary oil soon. I'll have to see whats on the magnet.

I put my worn out SE Compensator back in after I had problems with the BDL. I'm still undecided if I'm gonna put the BDL compensator that they sent me as a replacement back in. I will say that the bike ran great with the BDL in but it was that funky noise I was getting that made me take it back out. I believe MikeU put a BDL back in after he had a pretty substancial problem and its been fine for him. Hopefully he will comment on it

Rob, Ive had the new BDL in since the end of last season and have been riding it for many miles this season and all is good, so far.
I didn't check it over the winter like I was going to.
I will probably pull the primary off, when I have the time, and check it all out.
I'll keep you posted.
