    I think its done for clearance. It doesnt go anywhere, just into the stud bore.
    I removed the stud and cleaned all the oil/crud out with acetone to prevent contamination.

    I have been thinking about this...... This only spins when the starter is engaged... wrong or right? This kind of wear seems strange to me. It had to wear through the bushing, then start on the case. I once put my bendix cover back on incorrectly. All seemed well. But when i would turn the engine off, a delayed noise in the bendix area continued for a moment. I can't recall the details, something about the cover binding, or the gasket, but I presumed the bendix was staying engaged. I took it back down, reinstalled and it fixed it.

    Maybe. We don't know the history of this bike. It was just purchased out of Texas and brought to Arizona. Probably has about 90/95 hours on it.

    Yea, those hours, if never changed, that would be my expectation of damage.

    I want to note that I bought these brass bushings, did an amazing job of keeping everything greased, and they failed me after 20 hours as well. There was tons of slop in them, and it caused my starter to fry. I just started using the cheap KTM ones again and I am replacing them on a short schedule instead.

    I have the bushings from Funrider in my '18 300 XCW. Nice fit. I'm also running the wet mod. At 80 hrs and all is well.

    That case damage is pretty bad, about the worst I've seen. Funrider makes a taller/deeper bushing out if superior material (similar to the XRC bushings but much taller) that has worked as a good repair on cases with this type of damage. Change it now so you don't have to worry about yours.

    Also, regarding the Freerides running backwards. Kenny and I both had 2015 Freerides (he still has his). When the 2016's came out, we saw that the only difference was the CDI. So Kenny got one and I tried it. My bike started running backwards on several occasions after that. I took out the 2016 CDI and put the 2015 back in, and it never happened again.
