    Rear sprocket carrier hub.

    Mines fecked and I need a new or used one in gold please. Plenty of silver ones available new, but gold is discontinued. There must be one out there somewhere.

    If not then it's either try and get a silver one anodized gold or is it maybe possible to machine the old hub and fit a larger bearing?

    How bad is it? Looks like the bearing outer race has been spinning in the hub?
    Is it worth looking at using a Loctite bearing retainer, depending on your tolerances?
    Otherwise I'm sure an engineering shop could machine the hub to take an insert, then machine the insert to take an original bearing.
    All down to cost I guess.

    I know you're after a gold one, but I have a very good condition silver one for 25 including delivery if you go down the route of getting it anodised.

    Thanks Tash I'll bear that in mind if I can't get a gold one.
    Stevex I think too much alloy was removed for Loctite but machining may be an answer, I'll have to ask around locally.

    Tash do you know if the hub is silver anodised or just the natural aluminium finish? I think I've read before that it's hard to anodise over previously anodised surfaces.

    It's a pain in the arse re-anodising ali parts like that mate.
    Usually, the part is acid etched to remove the existing, then re coated.
    Bearing fit is never the same.
    I had some forks done many years back, and it was impossible to get a perfect seal fit.
    Was told that the acid etch takes off a bit of the meat?

    That's interesting. There's a realy good place near me that gets good recommendations. They will mask off areas so bearings aren't affected for a few dollars more.

    Where did you get a gold one anyway? I've never seen but one part number for the carrier across all models from 98 Mille through gen 2 and the latest V4's. SP, Nera, Racing, etc. All the same part number.

    2002 Tuono R Limited, part number AP8125900. Number 11 here https://www.ultimateparts.net/aprili...o-2013&i=18713, discontinued part, non available from any Aprilia dealers. It looks like Aprilia sold off their remaining stock to clear shelves some time ago. Someone somewhere must have bought them all up at 10 each!!!!!!!!
