    Are you on about the cush-drive rubbers on the rear If so, yep swap them over (as long as they're not damaged)
    Cheers!

    no rubber bits on mine either, ditch them. The new sprocket should come ready to fit!!

    WTF is this rubber then?

    I'd want my sprocket to be metal to metal on the faces otherwise you could end up with the sprocket flexing laterally.

    And that would not be good news for alignment or chain wear rates.

    The oem sprocket had a rubber cushion both sides on mine, the replacement Talon was bare metal.

    Same here....

    Ignore the rubber. Install, torque to 50NM. Do up the chain and RIDE!!
