Compensator Sprocket for Twin Cam & M8 Models

** NOW in stock! **

BAKER Drivetrain unveils the final solution to the late model compensator problems. The new BAKER Drivetrain compensator sprocket is engineered with an annular oil distribution system that scavenges primary oil and pumps it with centrifugal force to all radial and axial thrust surfaces. English translation: This sprocket delivers quiet operation, relentless durability, and refined function to smooth out the inherent power pulsations of the second-generation Twin Cam and M8 motors.

BAKER Drivetrain’s Compensator Kit features:

  • Decreased compensating cam lobe diameter yielded a significant reduction in cam lobe velocities. With the reduction in cam lobe velocities, comes a reduction in wear.
  • Increased radial width of the compensating cam lobes reduced the P.S.I. loading which greatly extended the durability.
  • Seven supportive spokes structurally tie the sprocket ‘ring’ to the sprocket hub.
  • The mass of the sprocket is concentrated towards the center so the ‘flywheel effect’ is minimized which reduces N&V noises during operation and shut down.
  • Heat treated 4140 alloy steel construction.
  • Made in America by Americans.
Benefits:
  • Improved functions
  • Quieter operation
  • Extended durability over the stock configuration

Inspect the inside of the outer primary for a plastic oil deflector or casted in oil deflector. The plastic deflector needs to be removed for adequate clearance for the BAKER Compensator Sprocket Kit. If the deflector is casted into the inner primary; this area needs to be ground out using a small air die grinder or equivalent for proper clearance.

Simply Amazing

I had the problem of hard starting, not starting when hot, and the god offel clanking going in to gears and especially first gear. Let me just say all problems have been solved and I am stoked 100% happy with the investment. I performed the work myself according to Bakers Instructions and my manual. All went well and it honestly seems like I am on a totally diffrent bike. It costed me almost $1000 with the compensator, rotor, Gasket Kit, fluids, and torx socket, but it was well worth it at the end. Baker Support was top notch and next to none as well when I had questions. Now if Harly Davidson could only take note of their flawed craftmenship on their compensators and correct their problems they would not have to look like beginners in that area. But as long as Baker is around and maintains their USA MAde Quality parts then it doesnt really matter what Harley Davidson does to their reputation. Dont get me wrong I love my Harley, but they are just not on the same level as Baker Drivetrain when it comes to making good quality compensators.... A+++ for Baker Drivetrain Thank You

New Comp

Very easy to install if you have the right tools. Prior to install, used to get the dreaded clunk when I'd shut the bike off, now it shuts-off nice and smooth. Bike seems to start a little easier as well!!!
