Angry Eccentric Hub - experience of what not to do !

Hi there team,
Firstly I would like to state that 'theKnurl' is an absolute bloody champion bloke and indeed a zen master of information! - He definitely rocks !

Well I originally thought that my rear bearings had gone and fortunately 'Gremmin' and his mate Pat came to the rescue with a spare set they had on-hand...great stuff, I was going to be all good to go !! (thanks again guys)

...errrrrr hmmmm ahhhhhh - well maybe not

Please note:
When riding if your rear end feels a little loose, perhaps like it's a bit wet or your tyre feels like its lost a bit of pressure...but maybe it feels ok at speed (50mph+)....please STOP and check. ( I didn't)

This is what happens when you continue to ride on collapsed bearings.

Fortunately the spindle, disk etc are ok - but the Eccentric Hub is well and truly MUNTED !!

Looks like the Brute is going to be off the road for a little while.

hmmmm ....Magnesium...2010....both nice options, but not an investment to make on my older model

I think 'not' riding the bike when the bloody bearings have gone is a much more sensible approach ....

Thanks for posting the link up BadBoy.

The upgraded RearHub is the one that's actually fitted on the new 1090/990 Brutales.

This is a complete KIT that will enable you to adapt the new generation RearHub on the "old" Brutes or F4s. Definitely worth replacing your existing hub or keeping on in stock just in case. I got 2 Brutes and i'm definitely keeping on in my garage just in case...

Oh BUM! ...ask Pat about this, as this is the same thing that happened to his lovely F4 SR... $$
