    Link sorted I hope !
    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

    The composite washer is made of PEEK. I guess someone would know how to make or machine one. I have seen the stuff in an engineering supply shop.- Rob

    Yes the PEEK washer to replace the roller thrust 3 part bearing that comes in the "upgraded/latest" SE compensator kits.

    POLYETHER ETHER KETONE is the base material.

    Use the PEEK washer that is OEM on the M8 Compensator , part # 40100064  this has been suggested to me already from the US forums.

    Has radial grooves to allow oil ingress , probably a good idea.

    (part # gleaned from the Ronnie's HD online microfiche, a treasure trove of info. Forum still will not let my desktop "cut and paste" but easy to search for )

    So I will be ordering part # 40100064 from Frasers on Monday. That will require ANOTHER stripdown ,crank thread reaming Khant of a job FFsake...

    Chit I'm a funging nexpert at this now !

    I will check on the progress of this updated tensioner while in there of course. At $127.25 perhaps a primary chain as well
