that looks easy. Has MV done anything to the newer bikes to correct the hub failure? I have a 2012 brutale. Is the hub the same as the older models?

No, that is a different one and should be better.

Great work Mitch!

On the wheel side they put in a needle roller bearing and reduced the 2 Row ball bearing to a single row.

Mitchys hub has a wheel side arrangement of 2 sets of double row ball bearings. They are also bigger and stronger ball bearings.
A bullet proof set up proven on the road.
