Soo....about two weeks ago I started feeling my back tire start to slip when I would go around corners, which I began to credit to the ever-dwindling tread on my back tire. After my back rotor started to grind up against my swing arm, I knew it couldn't be my tread, and after a call to Denver Ducati (we live on the other side of the country, but have visited their 2-story dealership before and figured that would be a good place to ask), found out that my wheel hub is screwed,:banghead: , which is something that seems to have happened to a lot of people on this forum. One of our friends knows a guy with Redline Performance in Richmond, who says that he can machine the hub out and fix it(not sure exactly how it's supposed to work but he seems like he knows what he's doing lol). Anyway we got the hub out, which wasn't too bad, but the big problem is we had no stand (normal stands don't work with the exhaust in the way) so this was our solution........Think it will hurt anything? It will probably be like this for the next 2 weeks or more, so I'm just trying to figure out if I should do anything else while it's in "storage" ha..................My Poor MV

Hahaha well 1) A dead cat has a more active lifestyle than that one and 2) they're chairs from an Crystler Van, and with 3 people a Brutale is surprisingly light, lol

another hub

how much do they want to fix it?

if you chewed it back to the external snap ring groove, they'll have to weld it back up and remachine it back to stock.....the original contour is important or the brake carrier bolts will remachine it for you:stickpoke

the internal snap ring doesn't matter, the carrier nut keeps it together:stickpoke

if you want another hub and a new bearing PM me:)

ha, hey, not all of us can be italian. I'm not sure how much he's going to charge me, but they said it would be less than the $900+ MV alternative. Your fix looks really nice too, I'm just going to try this first and see how it turns out. Here's what the wheel hub looks like, doesn't look that bad to me really, but when you shake it sounds kind of like a bad lightbulb, which can't be good....also the bearing fell out all over the floor lol

The Hub's in another building in my garage down the road, I'll try and take some pics of it tomorrow (its 12:47 AM here). And Don't worry about the chair shortage, we actually have 5 more leather seats from another van believe-it-or-not, lol.

Haha yeah I guess we both are just england's outcasts, but to be fair, our boats were a little more spacious, and with less bars if you get what I mean lol. :smoking:

Your women might be hotter though, mostly because of the accents, (and maybe the attitude, or the smaller population of Walrus-lookalikes) but I've never met an Australian girl yet, so I can't really say......maybe I should just go and check it out for myself?? :naughty::naughty:Then again they might not like Americans......I hear were not that popular overseas lol

wow, that was painful...each pic made me cringe
Imagine how I feel lol, although if you think that's bad you should have seen it at first, it was almost laid down completely on its side haha, I thought hmm let's get it more upright.......

And About Mitch's Hub it looks really nice but we already sent out the original hub to be worked on (I'm hoping it's under $500) and see how this turns out first....I'm a poor college student so I'm going for the cheapest alternative first lol. It's really awesome though to have a forum full of people who know what they're doing............You guys don't think this will actually hurt anything (oil in the engine, etc) do you?

keep it upright,and put another cushion at the back?:lightning
Hmmm I'm afraid that if I set it up anymore upright, it could fall over lol,we did put a old fluffy coat at the back though so thats sort of like a pillow........ :brutale:

All the parts out are giving me time to clean stuff though, my exhaust has never been cleaner :) I wonder what the best polish for aluminum is.......

As I understand it, we have sent the messed up Hub to this guy a couple hours away, who I'm will do something magical to it and fix it; So I'm going to see if that works first. (I hope it will lol)
