From what I understand, it appears that all the parts are new. You would also need to have the new style bolt on rotor as the hub gets replaced with a new one and the rotor bolts to that like the Centa unit does.

I believe it will probably be a bit cheaper than the Centa unit.

It's a complete replacement for the original Harley style or the Centa unit.

Some photos of the KH compensator from Rob. I assume these were taken during trial fits. He says it is very smooth and he has had no problems with it so far. He is doing his best to give it a hard time with some track work with the big bore S&S engine. It has lasted better than the Centa unit as that was destroyed in about 100 miles of use. Good to see some real world trials going on.

Yes, but I would wait and see if it survives a full racing season of use before placing an order.

It’s next test session will be the Loton Park hillclimb this weekend. A good chance for UK owners to come have a look to see how it performs 🏁
