Very good jobNow we wait and see how the new version works out.
Can you describe the vibrations you felt with the stock compensator and at what RPM's generally they occurred?
I like it...Max
nice job! Thats the best looking comp I've seen when some miles put on it.What size drill bit did you use to enlarge the hole?Just curious...why did you only drill out one hole...and not one direct across from the one you drilled out?
The angled drill holes in the sprocket retainer have "frog mouthed" openings, this allows collection of oil vapour and or droplets during high rotation speeds. Previous testing by Richard and Ron showed that centrifugal forces whipped the primary oil to the extremidies of the casing and then splashed back covering everything.Low speed rotation allows oil fluid to surround the lower half of the rotating components and thus some oil fluid enters the openings and due to the centrifugal forces and the angle of the holes, moves to the bearing surface of the compensating sprocket.I also add a few more fluid ounces of oil then recommended to ensure that I am covering more then half the unit when stationary.
Here are a few photos of my pre 2014 SE compensator that I modified after getting the idea from the original poster (paulsailso1)....... if anybody still has the pre 14 SE comp. that is not in bad shape it might be a good idea to modify it. who knows it may last a really long time as long as its getting enough oil...........
Was the work pictured done with a die grinder, machined? Curious minds want to know. I would like some details DIY video. Great stuff, modify and make better....

No die grinder, just made the holes with a laser and a drill press then I fine tuned it with mini files......... its not to bad until you get to the hardened steel. No magic just determined to get a comp. in my bike that did not rattle or self destruct.......
