Good to know as I just mounted one. But I check my stuff regulary so should always be okay.

Yes, Erik, there are people getting 3,000mi to a set of 2nd Gen cush drive rubbers
On my 1st Gen I'm coming up on 39,000mi with NO WEAR!

Here are the things I see.......look at the last picture carefully......the 10mm hex is GONE!!!!
You think maybe a little too tight
Check the reverse taper on the head......they stretched it lolol
