2 new questions.
1. is this wire the 02 sensor like I suspect? If so, shouldn't it be not this close to the muffler (due to possible melting[IMG class=inlineimg]https://www.ducatimonster.org/forums/images/smilies/huh.gif[/IMG]) Seems like it should be routed instead through the plastic cover on the left.
2. Is it normal for the plastic belt hosing/covers/base to warp after a while (see photo for misalignment) or should I chalk this up to a lazy mechanic. (see photo below) Should I be worried at all?
