Sorry to hear about the problem with your crank. Did your rotor come apart from the body? I caught mine just before it let go on my old Trophy - bought a new one and never had a problem again.
I really don't want to mess around with indexing the gear box so if I can leave it alone I will, it only has 8500 miles since a major overhaul. The rotor literally exploded into the alternator while I was going down the road at 65mph, sudden stop of the engine is an understatement. The rotor key on the crank sheered preventing any other damage and I clutched quickly.
