    Some gleaned info from the US explaining some of the changes over time. There have been further revisions since these diagrams I believe.HD Forums Australia - Compensator exploded diagram 2013 and 2014.jpg

    Trying to secure one of these from GMR Performance. These used to be available with the "Compensaver" aftermarket oiler system ( NLA sadly as a complete unit !)

    This is to replace the 3 piece roller bearing that comes with the latest 2014 and up SE Compensator kits. This has been suggested as a source of my "whirring noise"

    This quest of mine has turned up a trove of info but again the forum is not allowing my desktop to cut and paste , so sorry this link is being typed manually

    Look at the drop down menu button titled "Study results thru August 2015"

    It is indeed and an very interesting read. I side very much with the author with most of his observations. I am soon to replace my s/eagle comp so this will be the 3rd in 70k of ownership. They are fully aware of the substandard parts that constantly fail but snub their noses at the rank and file that support their products.

    Another primary strip down today. Chain and clutch basket/starter ring gear touching the inner primary since the last build.

    Chain near the lower front as in the photos attached. What is it with that I ask ?

    Put in the updated Genuine chain tensioner to see if that makes any difference

    Part # 39929-06B  Noticeably "thicker" in the base than the OEM original.

    Could have put in the Screamin Eagle manual but decided not to. ( Hopefully correctly !)

    Still spring pack and /or roller bearing noise from the compensator as suggested before now.

    Can't locate a GMR performance composite washer sadly
