Cush drive rubbers?

My G310R has done only 450 mls. and the cush drive rubbers are shot and need replacing!

Anyone else experienced this? I know from Adventure Rider this has been a problem on some GSís. My bike was manufactured late 2018 and would think any weaknesses in this area would have been rectified.

Yep I have a 1 year old GS and the cush drive rubbers went out on mine around 6K miles. The replacements actually looked different than the original ones and my bike now has almost 17k mile on it. Jenny the test rider for Ralley Raid also had hers go out within the first 5k miles as well and I warned her about the problem a few weeks before hers went out. Might have just been a bad run of rubber that has been put in bikes over the last year. All I can say is let the dealer replace them under warranty and you should not have any further problem with them.

My concern is really that it has gone at only 450 mls on a recently manufactured machine which implies that the problem has not been rectified!
