    Is it normal to go through lvl 10 bumpers so quick?

    I literally installed one a week and a half ago, and after 2 days of play its starting to get ripped.. and its an odd rip too. The lvl 10 bumper is a washer shaped piece of rubbery material. And the rip is actually a fraction of a mm inside the inner diameter, if you get what I mean. What could cause this? Is this normal?

    I oil the hell out of my X valve so unless tossing oil in the ASA and a little bit of oil on the powertube for the lvl 10 bolt is not the correct places to oil this thing, I dont know whats wrong.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Yes, they're prone to getting chewed up pretty fast.

    Options have been discussed...

    Now I thought the x-valve repair kit came with 2... it actually only comes with 1.




    can I use a lvl 7 on an x-valve?

    What's the difference between the blue classic bumpers and the x/rt-valve bumpers? They have different properties, but are the same material. Are they different thickness, or do they have a different "impact absorption" property?


    Yes, you can use a L7 on an X-Valve, you will lose the "anti-chop" feature. I believe you might need to change the powertube spacer to go with the Level 7 bolt and the level 7 powertube tip as well.
