How can you tell if your compensator Needs to be replaced?
2013 EG Ultra Classic, 20,000 miles
Can you see something wrong from removing the primary Cover?
I did look for current post on this matter but all I saw were Old, old post.

Mine is like a can of marbles in my primary when moving out in first, on a upgrade road.
I wasn't sure if it was from clutch Basket, Chain, or Compensator or all three.
I found this link for noises, I'll have to remove primary first to check out Chain, Cutch basket first.

Clunks starting or kicks back against the starter, rattles under light load, clunks as the scooter is shut down.

Or just looks like crap when you take it apart for inspection. You have to actually disassemble to comp to get an idea of what sort of shape its in as far as wear other than the spokes.

So if Mine is like a can of marbles in my primary when moving out in first, on a upgrade road, Guess it might be the Chain or Clutch Basket. Yeah I need to take her apart, (after it starts raining)
