AFAIK the idea of using the ball barings is so that it never wears down like a knife edge unit would...

However all mechanical parts have a life expectancy, I know many people have problems with the bridge height adjustment screws breaking...

Re: ibanez ZR tremolo

They don't wear out cause of the ball bearing joint instead of the knife edge (as said above)... and I've found that if you try and turn the trem posts whilst all the tension is still on the trem the posts don't wanna move and the hex socket will snap... loosen up those strings and bam, they turn really easily... that's what i found anyway.

If it does wear out, you buy new ball bearings for about $4.
