Willis24,

No, I don't run with a trunk.

I haven't done any long trips 2-up, so the only 'luggage' has been a small tank bag.

16t will fit a 900 motor, I'm running one on my GC.
Got it from Letko.

Not sure if the Elefant has a different offset to the sprocket compared to the GC, so maybe that's an issue.

A bit hard to tell from the angle of the pic, but it seems to be about the same height as the short screen I've got now.

That hose is connected to the larger one, which is the oil breather for the crankcase.

Haven't seen a hose setup like that on Ducs, but I'd guess it would connect to the airbox.

Chrome is definitely quite hard.

They should be able to grind down the shaft a bit, chrome and regrind.

Which fuse was it that went bad?

I'm familiar with Ducatis, not sure if the Elefants used the same wiring harness hardware.
