Wheel hubs
« on: June 22, 2020, 11:52:28 AM »
Good morning friends!
So I am contemplating a new set of rear wheel hubs for the 391R. I have a lonestar axle and currently have oem hubs. The OEM hub splines are getting pretty sloppy, which is starting to concern me. With the hp and weight my R is having to handle, I worry about spinning a hub.
My questions to you fine people are : What aftermarket hubs are you using (regardless of engine displacement),
How well have they endured,
How many years of service have you gotten out of them
What material are they(aluminum, steel, stainless, some mystical metal from the stars)
Thanks Loren

Last I heard Jeff wasn't doing 34" solid "play" axles anymore unfortunately.

Loren, I ran LSR axles with both LSR hubs and OEM hubs on 310's and 344's for many years without issue.  I have since moved to Durablue X-33 (pin drive hub style) mainly due to the modularity of the hubs and that my research found that they were lighter than other extended length axles on the market.  No issues.  For example, first one I got back in 2004 and still run in it (ran it for 2 seasons on the 443) before I swapped it over to the spare duner.  No issues whatsoever.  Last one I bought was through HSD Racing since price was dang good https://www.hsdracing.com/Honda-TRX250R-Durablue-X33-Adjustable-Extended-Axle-Billet-Hubs-202151EX-Prodview.html

Loren, rear hub aftermarket options (splined hubs).... In no particular order: LSR, Durablue and RPM.  These are the only ones available new.  The LSR are aluminum.  The Durablue are a composite/steel combo.  The RPM are steel.  For your particular application my choice would be OEM or RPM.

+1 for steel. Obviously heavier than aluminum, but will hold up better. I have always ran OEM on my bikes and have never had an issue. RPM seems to always have good quality.

I did not know that mine are older I wonder if fireball racing is still making them I liked the jj&a because of the lifetime warranty they offered

Can't speak for aluminum wheel hubs but the aluminum sprocket hub that was on my Durablue axle was badly grooved by the axle seal within 2 years of riding sand. Replaced it with their steel hub & after 10 years its still holding up very well.
overkill is an often underrated achievement
