after 2 hubs on my sxc went south, I didnt know one cracked and made my worn pads drag metal to metal so I changed my pads and didnt notice on the deep sierra ride thru the dusy ershim trail the bearing fully failed and made it into a two day ride/rescue... the second at about 50mph on a fire road it spun the sprocket fully off with the threaded hub tabs.. luckily no major damage to me or the bike ,,, that took me to a cush... didnt know the difference and went with the one that came in first ( the 03 earlier) they were both on BO. Noticed the rally bikes used the older one and now Im happy I got the single bearing older style.. it is a little short for the "diamond" 03 and older non boxy swingarm and maybe that explans the width difference.. but when torqued down it works fine and chain lines up , no brake drag... thought about a thick nylon spacer but havent went down that road. I will post a photo of the gap the next time I have my wheel off..

here is another thread about the bearings...

and I actually posted here..

so now all we need is the bleepin thread status on this one... Meat pop???

also im so glad the bearing/carrier question has finally been answered!!!!
