The compensator nut is actually what most people call the engine shaft nut. It's on the end of the crankshaft's sprocket shaft inside the primary. It holds the compensator (engine sprocket) on. Torque is 150-165 foot pounds.

Good Luck
Steve

Tightening primary nut on 1999 fatboy


Hi Anonymous, If you are talking about the compensating sproket nut you need to jam a large soft piece of metal aluminum or brass or a piece of hard wood on the bottom of the primary chain and compensating sproket to keep the engine from rotating. Then torque the sproket nut to 165 ft lbs. Good luck

Install stator


In order to install a stator on a Harley. You have to disconnect the battery and remove the outer primary. Then you have to remove the primary chain assembly, the clutch and the compensator nut and ramps to get to the rotor. Once you remove the rotor you'll see the stator. Compensator nut is 150 ft/lb. The clutch is 45 ft/lbs. The comp nut is standard thread while the clutch basket nut is left handed threads.

Can't get my service manual for another 2 week's. do you have a video for the change out procedure?


No, it's the CLUTCH HUB NUT that has a left hand (reverse) thread.

The COMPENSATOR NUT is a standard right hand thread.

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

Need 2 replace clutch on my 2001 softail duece


Remove the outer primary cover on left side. Don't forget to drain the oil first. Using a large pair of snap ring pliers, remove the clutch adjuster plate from center of clutch assembly. Remove compensator sprocket nut (very tight) and the clutch hub nut (left handed threads) and remove nut from bolt on primary chain adjuster. Grab the compensator sprocket and clutch assembly and lift out of inner primary.

Have noise in front of primary only with passenger on bike in second gear knocking clattering sound from


Sound like a loose Compensator nut.

The compensator nut is the part (the nut) that attaches the front sprocket to the motor crank.

When a cylinder of a v-twin fires there is a very strong power pulse. To keep from shaking the bike and rider apart these pulses have to be "smoothed" out. Harley does this by NOT solidly attaching the front sprocket to the engine - they use a "compensating sprocket".

A crank shaft extension, double sprocket, sliding cam, and a stiff spring together form a "compensating sprocket". When a cylinder fires, the power stroke is smoothed out by the action of the compensator cam and springs.

The compensator nut is what holds the compensating sprocket assembly on the crank.

There are a LOT of forces acting on this nut and sometimes the nut loosens up. A loose compensator nut results in a compensating sprocket that can move laterally on the crank. A loose compensator nut therefore is one potential source of engine vibration.

Harley-Davidson issued service bulletin a while back that changed the procedure for tightening the compensator nut, after a spate of bikes had problems with this nut working loose.

Check with your local Dealer to get the correct torque spec and procedure for your year bike.
