Well someone in Denver on the MHOR waiting list is getting one for retail price and tax free. Guess it's their lucky weekend.

i dont understand why people are over paying for the kit. its not like they are gone forever. they said mid march initially and they came 2-3 weeks early, so mid april could be next week if that trend continues. i mean i wanted one too but not enough to pay more than retail especially when if you look hard enough there are sites with them in stock.

Either way you have to replace, Aluminum $30, plastic $5. I have no problem with plastic either.

Good luck getting the ballstud threads out unless they're longer and can run through the other side...but these hubs don't look like that is the case. Either you take a dremel disc to it or you replace the expensive aluminum hub.

I went through front bearings with stock axles...I felt it could be the trailing axle inserts too, they might be off a bit or don't seat correctly. I switched to the hard hub/inserts and the stock axle then had a little play in it so the bearings weren't being smashed in when tightened.

I really like the stock axle design...never been a fan of the clamping hubs.
