Was that caused by a bearing failure ???

I wonder why RM advertise 18" rears, but ya can't select them?

Not sure exactly. I had it all apart the night before the race...greased, tightened, etc. All was recently fresh. Now the bearing is nowhere to be found, and the spacer looks more like a threaded pipe.

That clearly appears to be Operator Error!..:confused:

Did that thing make any noise? WOW

Guess thats why all the really fast guys run nice hubs and rims.

You my friend are to fast for your hubs!!!:thumbsup:

I accept all blame. It started on my 4th lap...and the growling continued for the last 3 laps. So much mud we couldn't even see the rear hub. We just figured a bearing was growling...evidently it was :busted:

I'm not that fast...a 15yr old on a KLX250S dual sport posted our fastest laptime. :confused:

Do the Pro-Wheel spokes fit the Warp 9 hub/rim? Just wondering, cuz if I go the Warp 9 way, I'd like to believe I have a bunch of spare spokes/wheel?

New oem hub - $250

Warp 9 complete rear wheel with sprocket and rotor I won't use $370

G-Force Richter in a 19" only - $270

The G-Force has unique hubs so they can't be used without a G-force Rim, and they don't make an 18" for Kawi. I suppose I could go 19", but my tire choices will have to change. Kinda like the squish of the 18"

I figure if I buy a new oem hub, I gotta buy new spokes, lace and true it. That makes the Warp 9 look better.
