Man O-War Motorsprocket System by DarkHorse

The Man O-War Motorsprocket is described by John Dahmer, General Manager of Darkhorse Crankworks of Wisconsin as "the first performance engineered primary motor sprocket on the market" that provides "instant torque response combined with our patented  engine pulse absorbing cushion drive (EPACD)  primary drive system for Harley-Davidson Twin Cam and Milwaukee-8 models."

Through extensive model design and testing, the Man O-War Motorsprocket is said to be "the only product on the market today that is engineered for longevity compared to OEM compensating sprockets, and that has been achieved without sacrificing rider comfort. 
"This patented system also puts an emphasis on rider comfort compared to the noise and harsh feeling under loads associated with one-piece solid motorsprockets.
"These premium features result in a product that is not just durable and reliable, but inexpensive to service compared to the expensive compensator-based sprockets that fail and need to be replaced as an entire unit. 
"The Man O-War will be the last motorsprocket you will need to buy for your customers' Harley-Davidson Twin Cam or M-8 model.

"All these benefits combined with being a billet machined, balanced motorsprocket that weighs nearly 2 lbs less than the OEM compensator, with half the number of parts, results in an unsurpassed level of reliability and durability for trouble-free miles and improved riding comfort.
"Replacing cushions costs considerably less, and we estimate that it takes a technician under one hour's labor with proper tooling and our economically priced, certified 8-piece cushion kit."
The Man O-War Motorsprocket is available as a 34-tooth OEM sprocket, or the rpm range can be raised with the company's 32-tooth gear performance sprocket to allow faster acceleration and better utilization of 6th gear at lower speeds, without lugging; both carry a 12-month limited warranty.
The 32-tooth gear performance sprocket requires a primary chain adjuster shoe that attaches to the OEM auto chain tensioner - available from Darkhorse.
