If you have a 2009 model F4 1000R then it will have the failure prone rear hub bearing, plenty of info here in the search feature, download your self a copy of the workshop manual and get busy checking it. IF you feel any roughness in the bearing replace it straight away.

It very much depends on how much you have available to spend. Mitch's hub is a great solution ( I have seen one and installed it on another bike) solid dependable, but a bit costly.

I have a routine on our three MV's of regular inspection, cleaning and servicing of the original hub, I always have spare bearings here in the garage and replace as necessary. That works for me and I am comfortable with the process. it is very easy to disassemble clean and check and cheap and easy to do.

Very much your choice.

If you can afford to, just getting Mitch's hub. It comes with all the fixings that you need, and you won't ever have to worry about the problem again.

I think you can upload pictures and links after 50 posts? That's when you become a senior member but I'm not positive about this, maybe some of the moderators can enlighten us further.

tyne4728 where are you based? There are plenty of tales about premature rear hub bearing failure, there are also some like me who have an F4 750 \which clocked 27k miles without issues, I only replaced the hub bearing out of guilt in the end.

Certainly a check and inspect before any long run to Assen or Europe. As for service histories, most bike shops do not even look at the hub or know how to service it, so learn how to do it yourself, simple task few tools needed and plenty of help and advice available here.

Just go for the replacement that the Knurl offers. I have done the same and its multiple times cheaper than the mitchy hub (eventhough with his solution you will never have to look at your hub again).

I also got my bearings from the Knurl and have been very happy ever since!
