The compensator nut is right hand threads and very tight with Locktite on them. The torque is 150-165 ft. lbs of torque. The books says to put "two lines" of Locktite 271 red on the threads in the nut. Evidently, most mechanics seem to misread this and apply two bottles of the stuff on the nut making it very difficult to get off.
You will need a "primary locking bar" to prevent the engine from turning while you attempt to get the nut off. I use an air wrench as well. If you don't have an air wrench, take your bike to a tire store and give them a little bit of money to take the nut off with their air wrench. When you put the nut back on, you'll need a torque wrench and the primary locking bar for sure.
The clutch nut is left handed threads. 60-80 ft lbs torque I think. Check on these torque values as this is what they are on the earlier models that I work on. I doubt Harley has changed them but check to make sure. Simply call a dealer and ask. Good Luck!

SOURCE: Compensator nut
150-165 foot pounds with two LINES of Loctite 271 red in the threads of the nut. Yeah, it's tight and you will need a primary locking bar to lock the primary so that the engine will not turn over while applying torque to the nut. A primary locking bar is a piece of rectangular metal stock cut the precise length to fit into the primary chain teeth on engine sprocket and the outer clutch shell in order to prevent the spocket from turning. Good Luck, Steve
