Well, I have only replaced them once in two years that I have had the 980 and did not notice uneven wear between the extractors. In fact I kept the original extractors as the amount of wear on both was not even noticeable compared to the new ones I was installing, so I will eventually just put the old extractors back in someday unmodified.

Yeah, mine don't wear excessively either. Just thought it interesting to see how to disassemble an extractor.

Just to note: the green extractors from i-series also fit to 800/900 Roombas, using the original yellow bearings.
