There are several threads about compensator noise and fixes with washers etc. Try the "search" tab and just put in compensator.Belt runs to the outside. Compensator sounds loud and not normal. Are they known to break. I do ride
That's a good question, I have'nt looked. I replaced the belt and rear pulley with used ones off a low mileage salvaged CC. Front pulley looked good. That was 18K ago and it's been getting progressively noisier. The last 5K on a trip out west it was so bad I did the Ivory soap thing a few times. I think I will bite the bullet and buy a new belt and check the rear pulley with a dial indicator.Where is the belt tracking on the front pulley?
