Those who have the Baker compensator

Those who have the Baker compensator & have some miles on it, any issues?
I'm thinking of getting the Baker setup, really don't want to put same SE in that keeps failing in these bikes. I'm getting the occasional clunk at startups & some rattling noise at times.

Are there still issues with the latest version of the SE comp? I've got over 26k on the latest version comp and I've put it through hell with my 120. Curious if others are having issues.

I have the Baker comp and Baker attitude chain tensioner and i do not have the clunk at start up or shutting the bike down. I still hear a slight clunk sound every now and then in 1st gear letting off the throttle and applying throttle, but i think they all do that. I had to have a part milled down .030 to align the chain, but Baker fixed the part and sent it back to me fairly quick. After about 600 miles still doing good. Starts and shifts a lot better also.

I put the Baker compensator in my bike last November and I haven't had a problem with it. I used the stock HD primary chain tensioner and everything is working just fine, so I don't see a real need to get the $200 Baker manual chain tensioner. At this time I would recommend going with the Baker compensator

Thanks guys, just seeing if it's worth going with Baker or the latest SE, mine is a 2012 so I most likely have the earlier SE in mine
