While on a nice spirited ride yesterday through the Snowy Mountains my rear hub bearing let go, fortunately I felt it go on a relatively slow corner and pulled over. I decided (wisely or not) to ride it the 10 or so kms to Thredbo, very slowly of course, but it has probably done a little more damage than just the hub. :bawling:

1 Mitch hub is already on order (thanks Mitch) but a few more bits may be needed.

I haven't taken it apart yet as I'm in the process of getting a shed built, so space is limited. Going on previous hub failings am I likely to of damaged anything else I can't see? How about the axle?

Does anyone have the rear brake carrier and/or the nuts and bolts I can trade for some cash monies? These are definitely damaged.

I'll post some pics as soon as I can upload them.

Helen,the axle will be fine they are tough as nails.The disc caliper bracket/bolts you may get from Carl (CAG) on the forum.PM him you might be lucky.At least when you fit my hub this won't happen again.I should start to stock these parts because they get damaged very quickly when the rear bearing decides to spit the dummy.:jsm:

Bugger, Bum, Shit. Been down that road. How many ks on the hub,just out of interest. Smart move getting one of Mitch`s hubs. Rich might still have some of the bits you need from his 750

Helen, if you need a centre stand I have one of those you can borrow, makes replacing the hub much easier.

I might have some bits left from the 750 so once you have it apart let me know.

Thanks guys, hoping it'll be an easy ish fix up. It has 24500kms on the bike but I had already replaced the bearing at 14000 when there was a little play in it.

I was only discussing last week with the other half that I should just go ahead and order the new hub and be done with it, hey ho.

Thanks for the offer Rich but I've got a stand, plus we now live down here near Cooma so it's a little out of the way to get. If you ever down this way for a ride call in and say hi.

Hi Cus, yep got one. I've come quite accustomed and skilled at taking this bike apart over the years and have built up a little arsenal of tools.

Not long ago did the 24k service with valve clearance adjustments, wasn't that a fun little exercise I'd never like to repeat. ?

Helen,
It looks as though you have things under control.
Not a nice feeling when it goes and I did a similar thing in that I also limped home when it happened which didn't really help things.
This is a list of the parts I had to replace :

1 x Bracket Rear Caliper, Part No : 0002787
1 x Rear Brake Disc, Part No : 0000185
1 x Set Brake Pads Rear, Part No : 0000195
4 x Disc Bolt, Part No : 0000186
4 x Nut, Part No : 0000187
1 x Flange Rear Brake Disc, Part No : 0000183
4 x Screw, Part No : 0000184
2 x MV Ring, Part No : 0000190
1 x Spring, Part No : 0000191
1 x Bolt, Part No : 0000067

I hope your damage isn't as bad,
Everyone here was really helpfull as was Andre at Star Twin with new parts if you need to get them, good luck and don't hesitate to let me know if there is anything I can do to help.
Cheers Phil.

Eddy a bit of info for you about bearings that I have learnt since making my hubs.INA have multiple factories around the world 2 being Russia and Germany so it's luck of the draw where the bearing was made.I use IKO needle bearings in my hubs purchased from Noel's mate Charlie (Thanks Noel).A bearing rep came into work to try and sell me bearings and I mentioned IKO and he said did I realize that IKO are the world leaders in making needle bearings,well that made me feel good.The roller bearings I use are Nachi,made in one factory in Japan,no where else.When you are dealing with people's safety and lives on a motorcycle you have to get it right the first time.End of rant.:)

Totally agree Mitchy, You will have my money shortly. LOL

On a serious note , I witnessed a f4 with this failure and at speed the result was not pretty,I am astonished that someone has not tried to sue Mv for this.

Mitchy do you have them in stock.

cheers eddy
