hmm, well if it's uncommon then mebbe it was just flawed. If ya can get helical gears made that'd be sweet, the ones in mine are loud but don't show any signs of wear after 700mi o_O I do give 'em a touch of the ol' marine grease frm time to time lol
I still wonder at it's catastrophic
failure... tho I suppose when one tooth went it started a chain reaction what with bits o'tooth and added stresses *shrug*
Don't mind me, I just like "forensics"
Lay off the hippy-crack you... hippy o.o
