It appears to have less parts. It's their 3rd or 4th attempt Don. Tired of being their test dummy. Will be on my 3rd compenstaor in 32,000 miles (original, one at 17,500 miles, and this winter for the current one).
Just watched the slide show from the "2014 model year technical forum" describing the engineering changes to the redesigned 2014 compensator.
Just watched that part of the tech forum also. Still can't believe they're so inane as to make the required adhesive separate from the kit. Just when a cynic think there might be enough going on to give them the benefit of the doubt and allow optimism they find the simplest ways to prove again that stupid is alive and well at The Motor Company.
Isn't that the truth! The adhesive to attach the deflectors is required for the part to work - in fact, the oil deflectors are central to the re-design functioning. But the adhesive isn't included in the kit??? A separate additional purchase??
Having things GLUED onto the inside of the primary scares the BEJESUS out of me!Ken
Maybe that's where the term "bandaid fix" comes from?By having you be responsible for properly and thoroughly cleaning the surfaces and then bonding the parts into the correct positions, I guess they give themselves another easy out when something fails. It's not their fault, it's your fault. In the meantime they make even more money (note that the compensator "fixes" escalate in price as the years go by) letting all the customers pay to fix Harley's untested and poorly designed compensator. Hmmmmmm. Seven years from the initial introduction of the new style primary and compensator, and they still don't admit anything and just keep pushing the latest change as some sort of "performance" upgrade in the SE catalog. The chutzpah of this corporation (and lack of integrity) is beyond belief. Jerry
