Stumbled across this product on the internet. 1/3 the cost of the SE Compensator. Anyone use or have info on it?

Myself, not a fan of solid sprockets.

I would try that before I would ever buy another SE compensator. I have had two, and hated them both. I am still running the stock comp. on my 124 with no problem. Waiting to see if Hoban's comp. pans out. I know a few people that are running a solid sprocket, and they have no complaints. I have a welded crank and an IDS rear pulley, so I think it would be safe.  Thanks for the link.  I couldn't remember who made that.

What're the drawbacks to a straight sprocket?

With a solid sprocket, power pulses can be felt, mostly at even throttle cruising.

Having very little ass time on a Sporty and knowing they have a solid sprocket, how would they compare do you suppose?

I fitted a solid sprocket when I was chasing noises on my Road Glide.
The motor did feel a bit rougher at low rpm, but as I ride a Sportster too it didn't bother me at all. At speed it felt fine.
In the end I bought a cheap aftermarket spring pack for the compensating sprocket and put it back together.
I will admit to some paranoia about what can happen if you run without the compensating sprocket. But Sportsters don't blow up so....
The solid sprocket is useful for hunting noises though!

I ran a Vulcan sprocket on my 02 flht for a short time. The bike felt torquier but as stated the power pulses could be felt. It seemed to vibrate more thru the bars as time went on too

Would I be causing a big problem if I welded the ramps together on the compensator on my 02 RK. I'm tired of the clicking noise from it.
