the bushings in the LT brackets are roughly 1/4 inch on each side and fully support the pin, and it rides on plastic bushings = no wear. The thin steel voile bracket only supports the pin on a small area, the high forces caused, and the steel on aluminum contact creates the wear problem. Touring in Bozeman means im around a lot of sparks.

side note: voile steel pins are too short to use with spark binders
