No, they were a set of used Talons off a bent up CRF450 supermotard. Price was right
The RAD cush is pretty nice but seems prone to eating cush bearings. Its a resized knock off of an older design KTM 640/950 hub which does the same. I hear Talon makes a better one though its probably a special order. I also think they offer it in a complete wheel already shod with an Excel double label rim too...if your ok with their spline drive aluminum nipples.
You have a 2005 with the old 3rd gear. They're known to be a little delicate especially if they're ridden on pavement, more or less engineered for the dirt to function as the cush.
I didn't want to lose a transmission screaming down hwy 1 in Baja with no support truck. Figured the cush adds that little bit of give the transmission needs, so far so good.
