07 SE compensator installation question

I am installing the Heavy duty SE compensator part #40274-08, as I reassemble my winter project. I followed the instructions to the letter.The spring pack sub-assembly is installed correctly. The instructions say that after final torquing of the comp. bolt, a slight rotation of the comp. sprocket should be possible. I can't rotate it at all, without the engine rotating. I took it apart three times and checked everything. Any ideas?

Just a shot....But is it referring to the additional 45*-50* turn on the on the comp nut.

Cheers

No, After the final torque the instructions read. "Rotate the compensating sprocket to make sure there is a light pressure on the sprocket from the springs. No clearance should be felt. A slight rotation should be possible by hand with the trans. in neutral." They are refering to the sprocket being able to rotate slightly in the lower valleys of the comp. ramps, which are visable on this new part.

The correct stacking order of the springs is described in a somewhat confusing manner. Check one more time that you got that correct.

Thanks, but I have, there is also an illistration, so it's pretty hard to mess it up. (?) If I back off the bolt about 1 1/4 turns it frees up. Scott or Randy???

Well, The general consensus I got by PM's etc., is that it's pretty normal to be so tight. Just wish the freakin' instructions didn't ask you to do something that can't be done.

Rob, if you go the hdforums at all, pm a member named Dalton. He just finished installing one on his bike and is very knowledgeable. I am sure he will help.

You won't be able to move the sprocket after tightening. If you can, you did something wrong.

Dan, It just so happens that I know Dalton, We have similar builds and He confirmed that the sprocket can't be moved when tightened down. So much for the HD instructions. I fired up the engine for the first time today, Damn I love the Pro-clutch. The trans. slips right into gear no Harley clunk at all. Thanks for the help.
