Another hub bites the dust

While on a nice spirited ride yesterday through the Snowy Mountains my rear hub bearing let go, fortunately I felt it go on a relatively slow corner and pulled over. I decided (wisely or not) to ride it the 10 or so kms to Thredbo, very slowly of course, but it has probably done a little more damage than just the hub.

1 Mitch hub is already on order (thanks Mitch) but a few more bits may be needed.

I haven't taken it apart yet as I'm in the process of getting a shed built, so space is limited. Going on previous hub failings am I likely to of damaged anything else I can't see? How about the axle?

Does anyone have the rear brake carrier and/or the nuts and bolts I can trade for some cash monies? These are definitely damaged.

I'll post some pics as soon as I can upload them.

Does my bum look fast on this?

Helen,the axle will be fine they are tough as nails.The disc caliper bracket/bolts you may get from Carl (CAG) on the forum.PM him you might be lucky.At least when you fit my hub this won't happen again.I should start to stock these parts because they get damaged very quickly when the rear bearing decides to spit the dummy.

Bugger, Bum, Shit. Been down that road. How many ks on the hub,just out of interest. Smart move getting one of Mitch`s hubs. Rich might still have some of the bits you need from his 750

Helen, if you need a centre stand I have one of those you can borrow, makes replacing the hub much easier.

I might have some bits left from the 750 so once you have it apart let me know.

Thanks guys, hoping it'll be an easy ish fix up. It has 24500kms on the bike but I had already replaced the bearing at 14000 when there was a little play in it.

I was only discussing last week with the other half that I should just go ahead and order the new hub and be done with it, hey ho.

Thanks for the offer Rich but I've got a stand, plus we now live down here near Cooma so it's a little out of the way to get. If you ever down this way for a ride call in and say hi.

Hi Cus, yep got one. I've come quite accustomed and skilled at taking this bike apart over the years and have built up a little arsenal of tools.

Not long ago did the 24k service with valve clearance adjustments, wasn't that a fun little exercise I'd never like to repeat. ?
