Question Broken bolts on KMS Sheave

I went to install my 14g weights on my sheave yesterday and when I pulled the sheave off I found that 2 of the 8 or ten little tiny 6mm bolts that hold the cover on the sheave have broken off. They are side by side, will i have a problem with this in the future? Also there was a greasy mess inside the cage and the plastic cover of grease so this time I only put a dab of grease on the rollers when I installed them.

2006 Turbo Rhintax. Magnum offroad longtravel kit, Prp seats, full homemade cage with 4 7" Kragen HID's on the lightbar.

Those are real easy to break, It probably won't be a huge deal, But could cause it to spin out of balance or cause the others to work loose.
I would replace them, when you tighten them, don't use anything other than a hand tool to tighten them, even a ratchet isn't good.

I went for a quick ride around my dads property and didn't feel anything as far as out of balance. Hmmm, time to find my easy out and see if maybe i can replace those two. I'll do it after presidents day.

Like Mark said... it probably wont be a huge deal.

While it was off it wouldnt hurt to repalce them... but since you already put it back together.... dont worry about it. Just drive it. You will be fine.
