Just got mine, thanks. Has anyone had these new ones long enough to report on how they are wearing yet?
I have a set from the first batch in my sled. They prob have 3k miles on them. And had a friend who put 5k on them without issue. No matter what batch it’s the same material and same machine shop.
I have had zero issues with mine.

The Alm mount for both the torque arm to tunnel and rail to crank arm that these bushings ride on it wearing as fast or faster than the bushings. The same bushings and STEEL mounts are used on the Pro R they don't wear and the bushings last a lot longer!!

The bushings I have created wear great. Also my bushing is focused on the thrust wear. The stock bushing does not have the flange like mine. The flange prevents the rear crank are from making metal to metal contact when the skid shifts side to side The excess side to side movement makes it difficult to align the track precisely.
I agree on the inner bushing material. Should be steel. Although the stock inner bushing does have a nice coating on it.

UPDATE: 11 sets of bushings left.

Will these work on a 20 sks 850 146??
according to the polaris parts website the same bushing i am replacing on the pro xc chassis are also used on the front and rear torque are position of the igx skids.
so i have not tested but in theory yes they should work on the front torque arm of the sks and assault.

UPDATE: 12 May 20
5 sets of bushings remain.
once i run out of bushings i will have to take a head count to see if i have enough interest still.
