I recall seeing a few posts regarding these polyurethane cush drives, but can't dig the up again.

Any feedback on these good or bad? I read the blurb on sprocketcenter's website, but always prefer first-hand experience.

Thanks!

I got some from sprocket center after my original ones wore out at 35k. New ones were lighter and fit well. I've put about 10k on the new ones and there working well. I project the poly ones should outlast the originals. I have not found any downside to the poly cush drives.

only real drawbacks poly bushings is that they can squeak and that under heavy load can plastically deform... rubber doesn't. Neither is an issue for cush drive since the loading is negligible compared to suspension bushings and they way the are compressed doesn't allow for rotation/squeak.

Poly is stiffer and will transmit more vibes... but will also provide a more direct throttle feel. I have poly cush drives and like them.
