BDS chain wheel adapter kit - Any feedback?

Hi everyone,

I'm currently considering updating the chain wheel adapter kit on my Turismo Veloce (MY2015) to replace the original one to prevent hub failure due to cush drives weakness…

BDS Bikeparts is providing a model allowing swap for the 3 cylinders and 4 cylinders bike: https://shop.bds-bikeparts.com/epage...ts/013MVWAKS-2

Any feedback on those?
- Is there any additional parts to be changed at the same time we change this (beside eventually the chain and sprokets)
- For those who have mounted it, how long the cush drives last compared to the MV ones old gen?

I'm considering as well the option to use the MV Agusta parts they provide on the MY2017+, however, the possibility of having them in a short leadtime is unknown, leading to eventually prefer the bds-bikepart solution…

Looking for your feedbacks

Thanks.

That is a cool looking kit. Is the OEM cush rubber deteriorating on your Veloce?

If nothing is defective, maybe you could monitor the condition, but order the newer rubber pieces before you need them and change them out proactively when you do a chain and sprocket change or other maintenance. You shouldn't need any other parts.

Well, they are not defective yet, but prone to failure. Maintenance range on TV is 15000 km, the dealer suggest to change them while changing the tires. Practically, it seems even too long for those if I refer to what I see in some forums. During the good season, i'm riding quite a lot. Last October I was closed to the bad situation : not much was missing to start attack the hub, looking at how the Sprocket wheel was moving. I did 2000 kms since then, and it starts moving again. I want something more solid…

Then you look at this video, where Brian Gillen speaks about the improvement to the cush drive system on Euro 4 version
Basically: they went back to old gen design because "this one doesn't fail"
In other words, I prefer to change preventively before the seasons: reliability matters…

This is their homepage, based in Germany:


https://shop.bds-bikeparts.com/


The owner is a MV Agusta enthusiast, rding MVs is his passion.


He owns a company that does CNC maschined parts and at the very beginning he made parts just for himself.
His parts are very popular here in Germany, never heard any complaint about it. High end quality.

Bernd's cushion drive just costs's the same as the newer OEM parts.
I will go for his cushion drive too.

I'm considering it for my F4 as it chews the poor quality MV cush drives. I've made my own cush rubbers from polyurethane, but I need to experiment with the hardness and wear, and that takes time.

Very very nice! Show us what it looks like once mounted.

550 euro is a lot of money considering the rubbers are quite cheap (if available - factory doesn't always have stock), let us know your opinion once fitted.
