FINALLY had the chance to get in there and look to see what was wrong. Basically, I didn't re-tighten the set screws enough when I put the new switch in. I slightly changed...

I had a pilot bearing and TOB go bad on my RX-7. I know exactly how that problem feels. This feels different. I also really doubt a TOB or PB would eat it at less than 50k miles.
