compensator,compensator that seems to be a buzz word.
I put over 75,000 miles on an 07 not one issue current owner has over 80K on it now, about 40K on 2011 103 rgu Not one issue until I totaled it. Almost 50K on the 2013 103 until traded, current owner very happy with it.
These engines need ACR on them. There is good reason HD made the standard on the 103's.
When you have engine work done it changes the game ,When that TC86 was built to the 103 if the CR were not right it is hard on every thing from the battery on down. The higher draw by starter wears battery down weak battery adds to the problems. Often with 103 kits you see the ACR not done to save cost. A short cut that comes back to haunt you latter.
I know and ride with a lot of Harley owners riders that do put on some miles , Not 1 of them has ever had a compensator fail not 1.
Can it happen sure .
