To be honest I wouldn't of had a problem if you did report it. You're a paying vendor with a product for this issue. I had a vendor account here and know how much it cost.

doesn't appear to be a fix, just a way to minimize the problem for those that have it

To be honest Mark, if $tone hadn't come out with his fix, I would have bought Bakers Cover.

If you remember I PM'd you and asked a couple questions.
At the time, if price was an issue for some; I didn't care what the fix would
have cost. I just wanted to be able to ride the bike and not have to do what CR3999 does......

I received the new part from Macombs Choppers. Looks like a quality piece, and for the money, it can’t be beat if it indeeds stops the transfer

How much does yours transfer? Let us know if it doesn't correct the problem.

So the MoCo has still yet to fix this issue even on the '19s? Mid Jan, I was debating on looking into a new Limited, so I thought I'd come here and check the chatter of some things.
