I went with some spacers from all balls -they have a hardened steel sleeve where the seal runs
the aluminum spacers were soft on my xr650r also - wore deep groves where seal ran
we ride a lot of mud here - so that may make a difference
I dont remember chrome plating on the wheel spacers on my dirt only KTM's,that seems odd to chrome such a thing but if you say they are then it must be so.
