Baker Twin Cam and M-8 Compensator Sprocket

Haslett, Michigan based Baker Drivetrain has released a new compensator sprocket to fit all 2007-later Touring/Softail, 2006-later Dyna models, and all models with M-8 engines.

Described as "the final solution to the late model compensator problems," this new Baker compensator sprocket design is "engineered with an annular oil distribution system that delivers quiet operation, relentless durability and refined function to smooth out the inherent power pulsations of the second-generation Twin Cam and M-8 engines."
Features of the new design include decreased compensating cam lobe diameter to reduce velocities, which then reduces wear, increased radial width of the compensating cam lobes, which greatly extends the durability, and seven supportive spokes, instead of three, which structurally tie the sprocket 'ring' to the sprocket hub.
The mass of the sprocket is concentrated towards the center, which reduces noise and vibrations during operation and shut down. Made from heat-treated 4140 alloy steel.
