I’ve had total failures of bmw 1150 and 1200 rear bearings at speed. It is not fun. Allot of stress on non axle final drives.  I always thought this system was limited.
don't come to a cat forum saying you should have bought a dog.

I agree. While a single-sided swingarm may be sexy, a standard double swingarm with an axle and a captive wheel seems to make a lot more sense. I could change all four of the rear bearings on my old ST1300 rear for $80 and find them at any industrial bearing vendor.

I agree, however, in my case, everything is perfect aside from the hub failure. I think a retainer is required rather than just a circlip as a redundancy. If it was retained then it would not be able to walk on the crown wheel shaft and therefore it couldnt wear to the degree of causing a failure.

As an aside, Triumph have recognised there is an issue that should never have occured and are now determining how best to proceed. Fingers crossed for a positive outcome.

That's good news. Please keep us posted. And I'm still interested in your thoughts regarding a possible repair.
