Question 09 SE Compensator on 07?

Has anyone put an 09-13 SE Compensator (42200064A) on 07 FLTR?

I found one on eBay and they claim it will fit 07 and newer baggers, but for 07-10 you need a "volt tech alternator rotor".

I pinged them, but they are unaware of a part number or this and suggested either a Cycle Electric or Drag Specialties, but instead of the rotor cover they suggest a whole stator kit.....

Is any of this legit, or necessary?

I dont know anything about the ebay one youre looking at but if its a HD SE compensator you will need a different stator rotor. I believe dealers sell them for about $150ish. And I believe they started putting the 96" engine in the bikes in 07. The 88" engines didn't have compensator issues

the 07 to 09 models had the same rotor the 10 and later models had a different rotor.
The SE compensator you're referring too will work on the 07 model without changing rotors so that part is good. The current version of HD SE compensators will not work without a rotor change.
Personally I would just get off the extra money and get a Baker compensator but you will still need to change rotors if you decide to do that.
The SE compensator you're looking at still had issues going out, the problem is HD didn't put any oiling channels in the compensator which lead to failure overtime. Don't get me wrong that version of the SE comp was better than the stock comp in the 07 model bike and you should get a couple of years of normal riding out of it if the comp you buy is new not used.
I went through 2 of those SE compensators in my 08 until I went with the Baker comp, I never did try the current version of the HD comp.

Was that with or without gluing the plastic widgets to the inside of the outer primary?

You don't need to glue anything onto the inner if you use the Baker Compensator.

I just got through ordering my Baker compensator. I already have the Baker attitude chain adjuster so i should have everything in a few days to install it all. Looking forward to getting started. It says to use 45oz of primary oil, is that right? I have a 2013 RGC.

when removing the primary cover, you go with 45 oz. when just doing a fluid change, 38 oz.

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.

Or install a straight sprocket from one of the several manufacturers.
Comp sprocket problem solved.

Yes, I took the liberty of assuming that part ... I was just curious about the 2 dead SE compensators. Did you install the glue in plastic bits and have them fail anyway? Either way how long did it take before they failed?

I ask because on a friends advice - and in the interest of time - I skipped then when installing mine ... and am wondering if/when it might be likely to bite me in the ass. It's been in there over a year and so far all is just fine.
