Sounds like it is not the right one for a V-Rod or it was not manufactured or designed properly. If I had the old one I would compare the two looking for any differences. Shredding and peeling is not normal. Something is wrong with it.
Contact the manufacturer about the problem.

I compared the two before tossing the nasty factory one. I emailed Energy Suspension and am waiting for a response! For now, anti-seize seems to have addressed it for now.

A spacer is just that. It should be under compression to load the bearings id's. What you have here is either the spacer is a few thou too thin, or the new cush has material that interferes with the the spacer OD. While a form of lube will temporarily stop the squeaking, I'd either modify the spacer od to slighly smaller or dremel some of the cush material out with a carbide ball cutter where it is currently running to provide a slight clearance.

So, the spacer that sits in the middle of the new cush bushing(Energy Poly) is snug? If that is all it is, sand out the poly bushing a bit to free it up. Then a bit of poly grease on it.
Or, leave as is and I bet it will wear itself in if it is still rubbing. Keep us posted, I'm on the fence on buying the Energy bushing.

It should be snug when axle is torqued otherwise it it would be called a thrust washer. I would also remove some of the poly where the spacer sits. Should have a good witness mark from the spacer as to where to remove material. Touch of clearance, no grease needed. Seldom do these kind of things clearance themselves, at least in a time frame we could tolerate.
