I printed these and the RJZM-01-08 don't fit into it the x ends...

It's going strong. Press it in with some force. The RJZM-01-08 didn't fit on the both x-ends, use the RJZM-02-08 ! (see Thing Details Summary).

i'll just throw them away and reprint for RJZM-01-08 with 16mm since i bought 10 of those and don't want to bother with returns.

i'll keep them for a bit so if anyone wants the two x ends just message me here and i'll mail them to you for whatever shipping cost is.

Igus RJZM-01-08 for Prusa I3 MK2 & MK2S x-axis end

Look at the Prusa forum : http://shop.prusa3d.com/forum/original-prusa-i3-mk2-f23/original-prusa-i3-mk2s-release-updated--t3659.html Point 4

Improved cable stress relief on extruder :
Proper cable management is crucial to prevent many failures including broken wires. The most loaded part is behind the extruder, where in case of improper assembly can develop a “hinge” and overtime, while extruder moving across X-axis some cables can get wear down and broke. MK2S is stiffened in this spot by screw and special printed part, which apart from stiffening also raises the whole harness up in the air, so it is not touching the heatbed anymore.

what are some of the older x carriage disadvantages?
