Thumbs down front rotor "Buttons" wearing prematurely

My '96 K1100RS s' front rotor buttons, (the round things between the rotor and hub) are wearing out every 50K miles. These buggers used to go much farther before they had to be replaced. Has anybody had any similar problems on their bikes? Could the hub be worn? could the disc itself be worn? BMW wants $200.00 for the set!
