Buddy of mine has one. Says the shifts are smoother, clunking is almost non-existent. He likes it. I may try one on my Street Glide. $105 seems a little steep to me though. I would think 60 or 70 at the most but I guess that's the way it is.

Is it designed to offset some of the damage that can be caused by crank pin run out? Or does it just make shifts smoother?

All it does is keeps "correct" tension on the chain at all times. Instead of being a stationary plate for the chain to ride on, it looks like it might use spring tension to keep just enough slop out of the primary chain to avoid "clunking" into gear caused by the slop in the chain being snapped out once the bike is put into gear. I can't see paying that much for it though and now they are saying that in January the price is going up to $130. Honestly, as long as you keep your chain tension within the correct specs according to the manual you should never have any problems other than normal wear of the plastic shoe. I have a 1973 XLH and a 1976 FLH and I've never had an issue with either one other than plastic shoes wearing down.

As far as crank pin run out, I've not ever had it happen but I've seen guys with high HP motors weld theirs in.

The newer bikes have a spring loaded ratcheting tensioner that keeps the primary chain to tight leading to bearing/seal problems, I actually just recieved the Hayden in the mail a couple of days ago and installing it this weekend..and the price doesn't bother me as long as I avoid repairs/downtime issues...(thats what the H-D stands for,, Hundred Dollars)

You will be glad you did went to the Hayden at 40,000 miles on my 09 Ultra and for the next 28K only thing was wishing had done it sooner smoother shifting and less noise ..
