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.

Although I didn't have the transfer issue in the first 20,000 Km, I did eventually get some transfer towards the end of last season. Of course it would occur when you're getting out of the Fix business. I did order Greg's push rod yesterday, so I'm confident that all will be good with the world when the snow and roads clear in April.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all of the time, energy and work that you put into this in an effort to help others. You Sir, are a gentleman and a scholar.
