    Yes on pins, except for XS. Yes on flex coupler rubber. If you mean the actual metal nosebridge, no.

    Mars has a different flex coupler. Made of a black rubber and bigger, not the same as what other frames are made from.

    Oh, that is interesting! I didn't know that. I was under the impression that they were all the same.

    That's interesting. Must have been old Mars, because I had mine retuned by HQ and the couplers were all the same as other X-Metals...

    every mars I have disassembled has had black couplers, i have tried to use them in a juliet, and they were a bit big. i believe it's due to the added depth of the Mars bridge

    reckon HQ ran out of the mars couplers and gave me the grey ones :(
