They must be having design problems with it......
I could not wait, I ordered from HD and specified the OLD style that came with my 09 FLHR please...When I got it tore down, the part arrived and Guess What? Yep, it was the New SE "A" replacement. I had to go with the SE comp. "A" replacement then.Now I had a choice: to Grind OR take off my inner primary.Glad I did the Take Off of inner primary and not grind. The Bearing in primary case and race on tranny shaft/clutch was bad. I would have put it back together using the stock comp and not knowing that bearing would soon GO. I Also did the Diagonal Grooves on my SE unit. rbabos said it is a waste of time (I do respect his opinion) BUT after following um-Teen pages of reading here on HTT about that Horrible RUSTY SE unit,,, I grooved it anyways... I do use MTL.Only time will tell as I don't plan to look inside Unless Necessary.signed....BUBBIEAdded: Yes my Hot Starting problems are a thing of the Past....
I think they filled the primary with water then. I have yet to see one that bad with thousands of miles on them. I removed the one from my 2012 bike and it looked like new with 3500 miles.

In 45 miles it'd have be no lube.. Mech probably assembled it without oil right after taking a crap.. Max
I find this post interesting for those of us that have not liked the final "gearing" on the last few yrs models. Many of us have tried to solve the problem by going to a 30T transmission sprocket. While this has improved the gearing problem, it has introduced another "problem".............in that the "stock" belt no longer works and usually required going to a (as I recall), a 139T belt.......(Which Harley does NOT make). So, many of us have ended up with a belt via Drag Specialities, which is a Falcon belt or whatever..........that does not seem to hold up as well as a H.D. belt.In fact, as a result........some have "modified" theilr swingarm length so as to be able to still use the "stock" belt by H.D.If this new "comp", can become available in a 32 tooth or even maybe a 31 tooth, it could solve the gearing problems and allow the usage of the "stock" belt with the "stock" 32T trans. sprocket.
Great news! Wonder if there is a pre order list. Might have to call John.
