The first gen hubs had major issues if people didn't maintain the hub.
Not sorted just less likely to seize. If you do enough kms on the new gen hub the spacers wear and the hub nips up. MV don't do hubs or headlights. Original hub seizure at 5000k, second gen hub spacers rooted at 45000k. I bought a Mitchy hub to finally lay this problem to rest.
