Default Compensator Noise Part Numbers?

Did anyone ever get any part numbers for the 2011 model torque compensator/neutral rattle noise fix, for those of us that want to do a self repair? I'd like to do mine. I can't trust my dealer to do the repair. (They scratched my bike last time it was there, and just generally seem to be morons).

I've commented about the morons at my local shop also. They're all over, not just there.

I've been fighting with my local shop about this very subject since I took my bike in for it's 500mi service back in August. I just talked to another shop that said they would have a look at it, and actually admitted that they had seen it before. I refuse to fix it myself (hard head), but will sell the bike instead. I'll not be a part of such a low standard of service. I've put out on the web a review of this shop every place I can find to publish it. If I expressed my true feeling for this shop on the forum I'm sure the admin would promptly edit my comments.

I've had several Harleys (among others), and now a Victory. My next one I think I'll build myself.

Jimmy #'s,
Call Polaris of Gainsville and see if you can talk to kevin Cross (KevinX). He should be able to tell you the kit part number and may also be able to give you the name of a Victory shop near you that you can trust.

BHax,
Please don't down the entire company over problems you had with one dealer. There are good folks and bad folks, good service and bad service just like any other company. You aren't a hard head for not wanting to do your own work, you are like anyone else with a new bike and a warranty and expect good service. If you want to pick at that dealer you should go to FaceBook and let the world know; screwing up your bike (I assume they denied fault) is not acceptable and people should be told. Also note that there have been many people that have gotten free repair offers after they were forced to go to FaceBook to voice their complaint.

Is this a job that can be done in your garage? I know that a sevice manual would be needed but what degree of difficulty is involved in the repair?

Why not go to your dealer and ask if they have a update part number for the sprocket.
If they can't find one ask then to call Polaris.

You could do the job your self if you have a air impact and a clutch hub puller and a couple of sockets.

NO you can't use a hammer unless you have deep pockets for what you break.

Actually, the job can be done without pulling the clutch. All you have to do is remove the side cover, remove compensator cover staked nut, pull off the cover, pull out the springs/washers and replace with the new springs and cover. Reinstall new nut and stake it. The trick will be re-tightening the nut to torque specs without the engine/trans turning. I've usually acconplished this on previous bikes by putting the bike in gear and having an assistant hold the rear brake, or polaris makes a little engine lock tool that jams in between the gears to hold them.

Just need the dang part numbers!

I'm not picking on the Co. as a whole, and it's not that I don't want to do my own work. I look at it as, if there is someone that will help me when I need it, I'll go to them when I buy extra's (pipes, chrome, etc.) The shop that won't help me, I'm sure not going to patronize, and I will tell anyone that will listen why not.

This first shop didn't deny, or screw anything up anything, to the effect that they told me "That is normal, all 103's make that noise". It sounds just like my shovel sounded when one of the springs were cracked in the compensator. Last summer a guy rolled down his window and asked if he could give me a hand, and asked if my bike was going to be okay. This noise is not normal. It only does it when it is hot. With the cold temps here lately it's pretty quiet, but next summer I'm sure it'll be loud as ever.

I believe that to be true. Mine did make noise when I was in my break-in period, but that was when I was being pretty easy on it. Now that I actually ride it, the noise has disappeared. Maybe it is just mine I don't know. Guess I'll find out again in the spring when it comes out of hibernation.
