I had this problem after about 100 miles. I was a bit P****d off at the time , but superglued it together an it seems to be fine. Just ogle at the bike and all the annoying things disappear. Its a work of art. Gnome

What r you guys doing to these rubbers? mine has 160000mls on it and rubber is intact, a bit worn but still there, surely someone somewhere has a method of re-coating them i.e dipping them in a boiling vat of rubber:)

I became owner of my RS with 4500 miles on the clock and the gear rubber was already split :(

Back in 2004 I had three gear change leavers replaced under warantee because of this. The last replacement finally had a different type of rubber and was much tougher (but still split in the end, a couple of years out of warantee - D'oh)

The early rubbers were a matt black colour and quite soft, the last one was a much harder shiney black material.

Always worth a go at having a push for a replacement if the bike has just been purchased - nothing to loose.

My 1130 gear shift rubber is also split at the end after 3,000 miles and 1 month left under warranty - waiting to see if it will get changed but advised not to expect it to be replaced!
