By the look of the drawing , their is no containment for the bulge in the rubber to push up against when its loaded. AWESOME idea ,i think it just needs to have a containment system , and even then it may not be thick enough , the rubber that is.

welcome to the forum, ryan. i hope you can get everything sorted with your product and good on you for joining the forum. one of the mitas tires guys joined the forum and answers everyone's questions on a mitas thread, he's generated a lot of good will through this as the vast majority of manufacturers don't actually want to communicate with their customer base.

on your website, it says the kush sprockets are for dirt bikes being used on the road. i commented earlier that i had my doubts the kush sprockets would handle off road use that well once dust got inside and started chewing things out. keen to hear your thoughts on this, as obviously all the guys here want to use them for adventure riding which means plenty of mud and dust....

Thanks, and thanks to everyone else for your understanding.

We had a lot of people wondering that so on the latest model there is now a seal around the ball bearing area, rather than relying on grease to seal.

Cheers

Ryan

I think I'll try one on my FE450 if they are available (same as KTM) when it comes time to change the sprockets. By then the subframe tank might be available too (LOL) and I can explore further afield.......including more 'roads'.

Any more updates on these?

I'm very interested in one for my XR650L... but only if they've worked out the kinks.

Been waiting too

I have been patiently waiting to try one for some time now.
I would love to give it a try, think it is a good idea and would love to support new ideas. Cant wait forever though, may just go the RAD Cush hub route.

Put it on the WRR, it may last then.
