One other thought...if the BST wheels seemed to have the same arrangement, would they not have these? I'll ask. I'm in communication with them over other matters ;)

I just checked and the BST Cush rubbers are $95 for a set of 5. Almost $20 usd ea. Also , they are not trouble free , they recommend rotating the rubbers 90 degrees to prolong their lifespan. I think the ultimate solution is to replace the wheel/hub with a better design Cush drive.

Good information Tony, mine will be going into the dealer in a few weeks for a service and rear tyre. I'll get the mechanic to check BST rubbers of course, but also to rotate them.

If it helps , I have been told the the BST cush rubbers last longer. It may come to be that the latest TCDR-1 last longer too. Has anyone ran them for more than 2000 miles yet to check condition ? Maybe Richard Peace anyone else. ?

New Chain & sprockets 2 yrs ago at approx 17,000 miles , picture of the last official Norton ones I had along with front sprocket & chain , Stuart Bodycote ( Motorvated) replaced Cush drives again last month at 24,000 with the talon ones , & covered around 900 miles since, I may go for Avon tyres next spring ( choice of “ Welsh Rugby “) so we shall see how the Cush drives are doing then .
