Another rear wheel has no to none effect on the rear hub assembly.
But if You want to change from the old star wheels to some newer stuff I would go the route to some Brembo or Marchesini forged super lights. The weight difference is simply amazing and improves handling noticeable. I just weighed my old Stars and they come in with whopping 9.8 lbs at the front and 12 lbs at the rear.

You were a week too late. Just sold my flawless Brembo Forged Ultralights for $1k. I'm switching them for the 7-Spoke Black Mamba BST Carbons. Stiffies all around. :) Sorry.

Go for it. I have the same bike and got bored with the stock star wheels. I purchased a barely used set of the forged ultralights from a forum member here. Handling is better due to the substantially lighter weight and looks great too. For peace of mind, I had the rear hub upgraded to Mitch's hub as well at the same time. My wallet is quite a bit lighter this month....

80 000km on original hub bearings, mate you are blessed indeed.:yo: Good to hear indeed, and yes, also good to hear from another bloke with a reliable MV.
I spent some time going through the registry and there are a lot of guys that has done massive Kay's on their MV's although they hardly ever post on the forum, probably because they have nothing to complain about. :)

to be honest i have been surprised by its reliability after reading on here
the only breakdown i had was a spu ecu total elect and fuel fuck up but all sorted by mv under warranty
ive had more trouble with all my jap bikes and most of my brit bikes
only one thing with the 910 brut is the BSA
but with my bonus that will be sorted

you wont here me do much complaining at all only if that moron sighk comes on here lol

Just shows you how timeless good design can be - the Brutale has not changed much in all it's incarnations, updates and evolution only.
BSA?

Have to say Rob's carbon rims looked sweet yesterday.
