My warranty just expired. 2 weeks later. Slight knock. So I'll be doing this too.

Well, I have about 500 miles so far on the BDL. My hard starts when hot are a thing of the past. The bike fires right up just like it was meant to be 😎 I recommend this compensator as an alternative to the factory one , time will tell the rest I suppose...
