$1,900 dollars later and I'm back on the road.  I hope the replacement final drive lasts longer than the first one.

I don't suppose you got to keep the old one?

I would love to see someone strip one of these units down.

No, I did not.  I thought about it, but then forgot to tell them to keep it.

The difference between the final drives, the new on top and the failed one on the bottom. Any comments?

I can answer the question ...

The one in the photo above is the one worn by the Tiger Explorer XCA of 2018.

The difference is that it goes much better and makes no noise. It is like a silk.

They differ by the oil seal plug, if you look you will see that in the new one the shaft is more protruding than the old one and the hole is wider.

Another more important thing is that in the photo above, the position of the ABS sensor is different (shorter).

The new and the old sensor use different signals and the control unit does not recognize them or it would fail the ABS system.

But be careful!
This does not mean that for a Trophy you can not put the one in the photo above, you can do it without any problem.

If you plan to replace yours with one like the one in the photo above you can put it to the Trophy perfectly.

The only thing you will have to do is a small support to give the Trophy ABS sensor enough height ...

So how do you get around this problem?

By using the original Trophy sensor and making a "small support to give the Trophy ABS sensor enough height"  :187:

This is one of the supports for the ABS sensor that I made.
