Is it very important ? Except for the look I don't think so and ... today I gived the swingarm part to be soldered for metal plate fixation.
So my disk braking system will be at the left for first.
I think the translation of "soldered" (souder) is welding. The soudeur is a welder. I do not know if the motor is only designed to run in one direction or if you can just change the 3 large wires to the controller and the hall sensors to make it go the opposite direction? Others on ES have written about having a motor go the wrong rotation. In some controllers, you must change jumpers and resistors to reverse rotation.
I looked very carefully at the pictures from Kelly and I see some of them have the caliper mounted with the brake bleeder on the bottom (where it won't allow you to get the air out) and some with it in the correct position, on the top. Strange?
Sorry for bad translation.
On my last hub motor you have just to reverse wire if motor is on wrong rotation. On the schematic I had, they talk about this (but i have no schematics for this one). In theory, motor is just wires and hall sensors so I don't think there is a problem here. But, as you talk about this, I will do something: I will connect the motor with same colors as the "old" one to see is they turn same direction and will tell you about this. If they do it will be perfect for me, if not ... I don't know, perhaps I will change disk side....
