In conjunction with a recent final drive renewal (chain, 15/41 sprockets and AFAM quick change carrier), I wandered off the beaten path to conduct some research on the possibility of relocating the rear brake caliper pin on my swingarm. One thing led to the next, and before I knew what was going on I was in the middle of a fairly thorough cleaning of my swingarm and rear hub. It's all captured in this 'How To' video.

Enjoy:

That looks good, I'm going to pull my hub apart and service it.
I was told by a Ducati tech that he has found swarf in the hubs maybe because of some machining after assembly.
Maybe instead of hitting the hub back in the swingarm with a soft hammer you could wedge the slot in the swingarm and just slide the hub back in?

Yeah I was thinking the same thing. You could use a wedge made of wood or a blade screw driver if you're gentle, it's got to be better than belting the crap out of the hub!

Good job Charles, do you have adjustable triple trees to go along with the now increased wheelbase?




It sure looks to me like Charles is using the correct rubber mallet or "dead blow" hammer guys, so it won't damage the hub at all.

Yes he may well of been using a dead blow and that's great, but it's better to slide two parts together than hit them.

@ bstar360,

Yes, of course you are correct. So a dead blow hammer and piece of wood to wedge the slot in the swingarm, haha.

Cheers
