The sprocket is also a problem. It fits onto the cush drive with 8 studs into the hub. (no lock nuts) Mine came loose within the first 200km's. Lock tite don't help either. I replaces the studs with bolts with lock nuts. The sprocket is in a worse condition after 3800 km's than the standard sprocket was after 18000 km's.
10 weeks is long time to wait. I would hope they would want to see you hub to help improve the product. Is there any kind of warranty on these? Let us know how you make out.
