Think was 2012.
Here is a thread about other brand choices. Seen like choices aren't any better.

2011 was the first year for the SE compensator from the factory. I upgraded my 2010 FLHTCU the to the 2011 SE compensator. My 2012 FLTRX has been fine.

I can't speak of the vulcanworks sprocket but I recently installed the BDL and it's making a hell of a racket when it's hot. I know MikeU also installed the BDL and he's having problems too. I heard some who use it have good reviews of it and my bike does run great with it other than the noises im getting. Here's a thread I started about the BDL you may want to read https://www.roadglide.org/showthread.php?t=162241

I just put the VulcanWorks sprocket on mine and like it. I have a different noise now but I believe its from the Hayden tensioner that I installed at the same time. The Hayden tensioner has a lot less surface area then the stock unit and works vertical as where the stock one is more at a angle. If you already have the SE compensator you will need a spacer that is not supplied as of yet with the sprocket. This is being addressed with VulcanWorks. I sent them my old SE comp so they can take the measurements so the can include a spacer. I used a 3/16" spacer on mine.
