I read in a thread here about not being able to move the compensator well i noticed on mine i could move it the last time i had the primary cover off,does any one know were i can get some info on were i can get a spring pack or maybe another compensator for a 1982 fxr 80 ci,thanks for any help
You might not need a new compensator spring pack. You might just need to re-torque the compensator nut. I have been dealing with compensator problems...my compensator nut backed off, lost its torque, which caused some problems. My nut lost so much of its torque I could unscrew it with just my fingers. My bike is a 04 Heritage...not sure how different my comp is to yours.
If our comps operate in the same way, then I'd say try and unscrew the nut holding your comp to the crank. If you can do it with anything other than a breaker bar, it's not torqued down correctly. Also, if it is loose, itâ€™s a good time to pull the assembly out, take a look at all of the metal, especially the crank grooves and anything that fills those groves (comp, sprocket, rotor) for damage.
