Rear wheel hub assembly moving - worn rubber internal parts?

Post by fgclark123 on Fri 25 May 2018, 11:40 am

hi there,

Just need to check on what's wrong with my rear wheel. The rear brake disc and hub assembly has movement independent of whether the chain is pulling it around. A few mms back and forth.

I went on a maintenance course and was told a certain rubber internal part is worn - I can't remember the name. Apparently it's a fairly easy fix. Daft question ut does anyone know what I'm talking aout?

thanks

Guess it could be part 1 on this -" damper set wheel" but I think it had a different name...

It's the cush drive rubbers, and yes they are no 1 on the link you posted. It's possible one of the rubbers had dropped out when it was apart at a previous time, they can't really go anywhere when it's assembled.

Here's a link with a far more sensible price:

Edit: Even better link on Ebay for £10!

There is always a few degrees of movement between the sprocket and the wheel.

Usually the rubber connector that goes over the lugs in the wheel perishes. I've just ordered a set for mine a few days ago as I've lost some since I've changed the wheels over.

I ordered this https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/141581000512 should be here in the next few days

cool, thanks a lot. is this an area where a serious flaw can emerge if not sorted?  I mean, presumably either my wheel or sprocket is taking some beating with every throttle change at the moment?

Given all the rubbers are in there you've got nothing to worry about, I was popping wheelies with having a good few rubbers missing/perished. You won't be doing any damage.

On the way back from spain last year I stopped in the Pyrenees to get a rear tyre changed .when the guy took the wheel out, the sprocket carrier bearing just fell apart. So I would guess that's worth checking while you're at it.

While you are there, check the wheel bearings and sprocket carrier bearing...
