There is another possibility. Maybe your chain has "tight spots". You may have adjusted chain slack to 50 mm. , but in other parts of the chain the slack was much smaller causing too much chain tension...

In any case I would now buy an aftermarket hub...

Good luck

there is one other possible cause, for the chain to be too tight, a rock! i had this happen on an xr600 i had but i was lucky i was running the chain kind of loose and all it did was break a few teeth on my new sprocket, i hope this isnt a manufacturing defect i just got my new 426 on thursday!
