Has anyone had trouble with a compensaor on a 2012 RGU, and what does it sound like. I get an occational clatter at low speeds usually gearing down. Sounds like a chunk of metal bounceing around inside

When my compensator needed to be replaced, there was a grinding when I tried to start the bike. Almost like it didn't want to turn over.
