It appears that there has been some water intrusion......was the sprocket nut tight?
If the 6810-2RS bearing is smooth when turned with your fingers use it again

Here's what Factory torque numbers can do to a 1st Gen hub.....this is a double row bearing, only one row failed
the one inside the hub....the other one is inside the caliper bracket

Thank you, you have reminded me of what I forgot to mention at the weekend. The sprocket side nut was certainly not as tight as when I have slackened the wheel side (as a comparison) set at 200Nm by me, I have never slackened the sprocket side before.

Pictures attached of the inner races, confirm little or no burrs on the spacer. The 6810-RS is very smooth, and there is no grease leakage in the centre of the hub.

With the camera out have I taken a picture of the calliper support the position of the ABS/TC sensor correct? the manual shows it in a horizontal position but photo there does not have the same type of flange with a position option.

Many thanks for all your advice
