Anyone changing a compensator and throwing out the old one? I am wanting the flat spring plates.
If you had asked about a week earlier, I would have had a bike to test it on. As it is, I just replaced mine with another HD 2014 SE Comp.A potential fix for compensator rattle.
Boxed and labeled, headed to the UPS store.I've got a set as well, Frankie (replaced with a Baker Comp). Looks like you're already set, but if you need more, I'd be happy to oblige.
your compensator should not be bad yet, but its pretty common issue. Comp nut backing off? I had to replace my compensator, among many other things, like: the main shaft seals and bearings. (My bearing had shifted just slightly)I have a question in reference to this thread. Can someone describe or explain the rattle you hear when the compensator is going up?
I have a rattle on my left side in the area of the front of the primary. It is not constant but comes and goes. Normally it occures when I have the clutch pulled in, waiting at a light or stop. I have checked the kickstand, and floorboard mount, they are tight. The H-D tech at my dealer also could not find the problem either.
My bike is a 13 with only has 9K on it. The compensator should not be bad yet...Right?:serious:
Thanks in advance,

I was hoping to get a Baker, but it appears they are still playing catch-up with their pre-orders. I don't expect this new HD comp to last all that long, but mor than long enough for Baker to get caught up. I figure, with 100,000 miles on the bike, a new comp is a good way to start the next 100,000. I do need to replace the clutch sprocket now, it is getting a bit sharp in the teeth.
