Measure before doing this to find out where you are with the stack height. Blindly putting it in may put you outside the spec.

Thank you for all the feed back. My initial thought was a solid sprocket but then I dont want to save comp damage at the expense of trans damage. Then I thought maybe if I use a Hayden m6 that would help insulate trans but judging from a few post back that wouldn't work well either. The best solution would be to take some power away but what fun is that lol. Did that darkhorse comp ever materialize that was being talked about?

This puts you right where you need to be. It allows the compensator work just as the ones from the evo days up to 06. It allows it to move but not make it to the tip where all the problem has been and the noise. I've put this in bikes where the comps were knocking like hell and quietened them down and no more issues after 20,000 miles.

update

Well as of now I have a screaming eagle compensator with an extra spring in it. Nasty noises are all but gone in it can even hear my noisy valve train again lol. Also went back to stock tensioner as it works well with my 49 tooth clutch basket. Been keeping as eye on it and doesn't appear to be over adjusting but haven't gotten too stupid with it. Making sure everything is warmed up be fore laying into it. Most likely going to end up with a gear and no comp. Look in classifieds if you are looking for a baker comp and attitude adjuster as I am going to list them for sale. Both brand new. Thanks for every ones help dealing with my problems.

With a rubber mounted engine, or c/balanced Softail, the rider is isolated from the engine.
Solid sprocket will end all comp sprocket issues.

Not to worried about vibration, heck as tight as I have my comp shimmed its damn near a solid gear now at cruise. And not worried about engine has a S&S crank and rods and all good components. What I am worried about is that weak trans output bearing and I have yet to come up with a tensioner I feel good about.

The current SE Comp in "The Short Bus" is "shimmed",,, I can feel the difference...

"The Short Bus" is approaching 60k mi. on the OE Tensioner,,, The Chain is always within spec when checked,,, Minimal wear on the Original Shoe...

Just get the Primary up to Operating Temp,,, Then Bang Away (A little Rev-Matching on Downshifts doesn't hurt either...)

Check it every now and then until you get a comfort level...

I paid heed to your advice in earlier post and have been doing just as you suggested. Have checked it a few times with no sign of it tightening from my initial setting. I am thinking my next trip into primary cover I will remove medium extra spring and add another large one and give that a try but for now its no worse then it was at a 107 and I put nearly 15000 miles on like that.
