Welcome aboard. If there is a problem with the rear hub you will need to factor in a substantial price reduction. Do a search here and you will find likely causes for this to happen.

Valve clearance check is usually at 12,000ks (about 7200miles I believe)

2010 and later got an updated design hub which reduced the issue. Setting the chain tension too tight, over tensioning of the hub pinch bolts and lack of service are the major causes of failure.

I strongly recommend doing a search on the forum.

Cheers thank you.Does this happen on all MVs or is it just down to people being neglectful.I presume the cost is a lot if it does happen yeah.Any idea how it is looked after as in servicing the hub regarding greasing it

Wink hubs?

phillo45;
do a search as revhead1957 said;
an "updated Factory hub" uses a single row ball bearing where the original double row failed......truly engineering lunacy

the balls are 3.5mm.....roller skates have bigger bearings

check out the Mitch Hub......less money than the "updated Factory hub"

and bullet proof
