I too had problems and replaced crank position sensors. That being said I suspect that many good ones get changed out. I have learned that cleaning the harness connector, located under the engine between the frame rails, can restore good function without replacing the unit.

I changed mine out "just because" but I kept the original in a parts box as a spare "just in case". I think maybe I'm a hoarder.

So I order the part and wait. It takes a few days to a week to pick up the part. I replaced the CKP sensors on two 2006 HD sportsters I own. The original ones seem to fail around 2-3K mileage. All good since. HD P/N 32707-01C. Cost was about $58 each.
I heard the dealer use Amazon more often than we can imagine.
They just print a sticker and the installation and make more money than dealing with the moco.

If the aftermarket part is reliable, of quality construction and cheaper price. I would go with that. It’s convenient because it’ll be delivered to your door and Amazon’s return policy is pretty decent to. If you have the means to test the one you have to make sure that it’s faulty or not. That would be a good place to start. Cleaning electrical connectors is always a good practice. Forgive me if you covered that earlier in this thread.
