I replaced my worn out ultegra 8-spd pulleys with new shift biscuits, everything seems very smooth now. However, when I tightened the screws on the pulleys, they seem to be bottoming out, acting like they are stripped. Anyone experience this before? Should I cruise by the LBS to get longer screws?

A'aight, I'll bite... I just took it by the LBS and found out that yes, the backplate is cheap aluminum and strips very easily. New backplate, good as new. Thanks for the views!!
