Look through the sensor hole, turn the final drive and count the increments on both.
You also should be able to tell whether the look of both crown gear backsides are the same or different.

Hi Nitsuj,

Have you compared the increments on the back of the crown gear between the two final drives?
Are these the same?
If yes, check the sensor and cabling.
