Magnesium hub has the same bearing set-up as my original hubs,only difference is 3 gun barrel holes through the hub to lighten it further (by buyers request) but not compromise strength.
MV original hub-1.1kgs.
The magnesium hub is still a solid construction and not hollowed out like MV's hubs,so I am happy with the result.
Honestly I can't remember what I paid for it, seems to me it was something like $300~$400 for AZ31 grade billet round stock. It may have been more than that, IDR.how much was the solid piece of Magnesium?
