MY19 Cush Drive Fitment on MY16

Here are some photos showing what the MY19 Cush Drive looks like and how they have upgraded the assembly.

My plan is to try and retrofit this onto a MY16 Turismo Veloce. Will be taking some measurements tomorrow to determine if the stack is identical to the MY16 and if the sprocket will maintain identical alignment.

If anyone has already retrofitted this assembly please share your insight.

Amazing what a company will do when you threaten them with lawyers.

Yet they’re still using the top hat spacer which was the cause of everything in the first!

Not sure if you are suggesting that the MY19 will most likely fail due to the top hat spacer similarity of those that have failed in the past??

Just a correction to the statement: Various checks by individuals on the forum have validated that this is not the cause...

MV have reverted to the original Cush-Drive design (750->1078). The new design was introduced in the (920->1090) models (cush-drive rubber part# 8000B2151)

Pending on your vernacular, the top-hat/collar/spacer (part# 8000B2150), wasn't the cause of the issues, it was the wear on the cush-drive rubbers. They were not handling the relevant lateral/rotational forces and eventually, the lateral pressure caused uneven pressure and subsequent wear on the Spacer. (there's quite a few videos/posts from individuals asking of the amount of lateral movement was normal)

The Spacer ended up be blamed, but was not the root cause.

Not sure if it matters but the top hat spacers may look similar but have different part numbers for specific model years. Top hat spacer Part number 8000C3430 is MY19.

Yes,those cushdrive bushes look the same as the pre 2010 bikes that never fail.
Why manufacturers change something that does not fail into something that does is beyond me.
If it aint broke don't fix it.
If I owned a late model MV.The first part I would change is the sprocket carrier.

I stand corrected. It was indeed the Cush drive rubbers that caused the movement. I believe I was one of the first to experience this issue.

I switched it up to a mitchy hub and AEM everything else. Looks amazing and no issue for at least 15k.
