Head pipe heat shield

Does anyone else have problems with grommets in heat shield getting hard and breaking up? Been replacing mine with regular rubber grommets. Primarily the front one I'm having trouble with.

Yes and I have seen a few videos of folks with the same problem. My 08 front is getting loose.

They're just standoffs, yes? Why couldn't you use metal ones?
