Rear Axle Cotter Pin Re-Use?
I know it says to replace them everytime you remove them, but I've gone through 4 already and I'm barely at 1,500. Can I reuse them? I'm not breaking them while removing them, and they look brand new. Is the integrity compromised? Speaking of which, what ever happened to the regular pins like Ducati's have?
