Hi Ric

This new update hub was available late 2009 ( this is when I got the first hub from MV).. You might be able to tell if your bike is fitted with one of these late type hubs by the colour of the axleshaft.

The new axleshaft is made of what appears to be a cheaper material and has a silverish colour finish.. The other way of knowing is to remove the nearside axleshaft nut and if there is a spacer on that side, then it is the later 3 bearing assembly.

JDS,1078s have the old 2 bearing hub fitted,the 3 bearing hub was made available late 2009 only as an upgrade for 1078s and earlier models and fitted to the MY10 as standard equipment,trust me on this,thats when I thought about making my redesigned hub when I heard about the bearing failures,Mitch.
