    There's supposed to be a carbon cap there? Mine has never had one since I bought it. Didn't think the Mach 5.7s had them. Thought that was only the SL link from the Mach 4.

    I was surprise when I serviced it. 4 bearings intead of 8 like the m5 I owned... I would prefer 8 bearings.

    I have the 8 bearing version. More expensive to replace though. :P
