Design Corse Rear Hub installation with pics.

As most of you all know the original MV Agusta rear hub is a weak spot with possible failures which we all don’t want…

Design Corse came up with their own designed rear hub that is quite a special one and I have the first one!! Today we installed it and in this thread I am giving the details about the hub and installation that went very smoothly.

Some information about the hub itself:

It is made from Billet Aluminium CNC machined and is a very strong hub with a nice titanium look finish (okay, when it is in you can’t see it, but still nice!). It is that strong that it can have three times the original torque pressure on the pinch bolts that is stated by MV Agusta for their original hub. This is tested on prototypes. With that all it only weighs 150 gram more than the original one which I call a great achievement!

Design Corse used SKF bearings and should be available at renamed bearing specialists. The bearing set up is 1 roller bearing and 2 needle bearing with a central spacer. The second needle bearing is fitted on the wheel side and this makes it stronger.

This nicely engineered hub comes with bearings, seals, circlip and grease. It is ready to fit with no extra modifications the price for this all is 400 GBP ex VAT for everyone that is right away interested.

For more specific information you can look on www.designcorse.com or mail Al at [email protected]

Here are some pictures of the actual hub just before Placement

Just to be complete; the Installation was in my F4 1078 RR 312. Note: I have a 2010 set up for the hub. The pre-2010 is also available.

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.

The replacement went very easy. After de-installing the old hub the replacement and installation of the new hub went very smooth. The fitment was very precise and actually there is nothing much to say about it because this went that easy. After fitting the hub in the swingarm we made sure to grease the bearings right. It will last longer and gives humidity no chance in ruining the bearings. The the axle in, spacer on, the sprocket on, the rear brake in place, wheels nuts tightened, chain adjusted, pinch bolts tightened and it was ready. Spinning the wheel I could feel in runs very smooth. The whole operation took less than an hour

Small update on this one. Few months and about 1000 km further the hub is running beautiful. Different loads and different speeds. Top speed so far 280 km/h.

If that is a question, I am sure Al can answer it maybe I just translated it wrong

Hey Erik, does this come with the spacers and all already in it, so no swapping bearings and spacers from the old hub?

What we've got here, is failure to communicate.

Design Corse Maintenence

I have a 2007 910R Brutale, my OEM rear hub failed at 10750 km. I puted in the Design Corse one, so far, all ok. The bike has 19100km now. In the last serviše they took out the wheel, lubrificated it, and it was all ok. Do i need to do some extra serviše to the hub?
Thanks.
