Unhappy Rear Wheel bearings gone 2007 910R

just under 10k miles.

Riding down to Brightonia this morning, when I felt the rear of the bike starting to twitch as I was braking for a roundabout. Checked the back wheel and I could move it from side to side without trying.

Mate of mine rode back to his place in Portsmouth to get car and trailer so we could get the bike back home.

Rear bearing definitely gone, have not adjusted chain since its service last month, but had the rear tyre changed 10 days ago at a specialist bike tyre place and I stood there while they torqued the wheel nut up properly.

I did a search on here but could not find reference. I am trying to find out if it was something that MV would cover as a technical recall under warranty ?

Any help appreciated.

Ronald

The rear hub bearing should have been serviced at 7500 mile check. I just took mine in for the 7500 mile service and was told that the rear hub bearing grease was drying out but they caught it in time that there was no damage. If I had not done the service I probably would have ended up like you.

Cheers

Re-do your search. Lots of threads about it. Common problem.

Not another one

yep do a search , common problem.
Theres a proper way to check the bearings (again do a search).
But if the chain is tensioned correctly as is the clamp bolts, grease the bearings every 7500 mile,& keep the water out of 'em, there have been lots of cases where the bearings will do 25,000 to 30,000 miles with out replacement.
Oh & wheel nut tension has little to no bearing on the life of the bearings , only yours

Thanks for the feedback. I had done a search through the forums and found all the problems that had already been experienced by other users, which have been helpful especially Cruiser's.

However what I was looking for was if anyone had actually managed to get this done under warranty. I would rather not have to spend 500+ for an upgrade if there have been any successful warranty claims based on the age and mileage of my bike.

Why 500+ upgrade? Buy new bearings and replace them or have them replaced. Make sure you torque the 2 swingarm's bolts, that hold the hub in place, at 28-32 Nm.

If the hub is destroyed, than, sorry mate, you are on your own. No warranty, 7500 miles check should be done. Though, I first checked them on my Brutale at somewhere around 20,000 miles and they were OK.

My hub collapsed and after weeks of MV denying any knowledge of the problem I tried too bet a knew HUB. Mission impossible, there is now no distributor and hence no sevice or spares in OZ. I sourced a new one out of the UK, which was great service. The new hub has some major design changing which is interesting for a design that had no problem. My pursuit of the situation got ot the point of MV and the interim distributor telling me to PISS OFF>

As far as I know, MV has not issued a recall nor provided warranty service for the rear hub bearings on a bike outside of its normal warranty period.

As Miha said, you can get bearings from the knurl. Hubs are available too for not a lot of money.
