The rim could have been easily reposition during the machine lacing. Im thinking since the motor was in mass production that this may be an isolated flaw. Ill look out for that valve. I really dont feel like relacing.
This motor is going to have to wait for a proper beating a while until I can overhaul the whole wheel. I have to get the spoke tension tighter and then retrue the wheel to get to stop speaking in tounges and making weird noises at me when rolling around loaded or unloaded. There seems to be a weird roughness or vibration from the wheel when i spin it slowly. Not sure if its a bearing issue or something. I have yet to open the motor up.
In my previous post I complained about the motor phase wire harness heating up. This is only at 60v. Im pumping some decent amount of watts through it but it should be hot like they are getting considering Ive pumped 4k+ watts through a similar harness on the GM and it didnt get hot at tacky feeling. I gotta get the funds to get some stranded 10 or 12 wire and strip a section long enough to get through the axle and solder to the phase and have a long enough tail to reterminate with fresh connectors. Re-shrink wrap the stripped phase wires with some high temp shrink wrap so it has a thinner heat resistant and abrasion resistant jacket/sheath. Also shrink wrap the halls and fish it all through the axle. I accept donations!
Various wire or materials to complete the process. Then maybe I can stretch her legs out a 72v and not worry about shorting the phase cause playing around with it again Im about a 5 minute ride away from screwing up a controller with the way its currently acting. Even after the phase wire upgrade something has to be done with my controller to keep it cooler with this motor.
I have to purchase a 12mm set of torque arms to run at 60v or 72v. I have fender eyelets so Ebikes CA torque arm should work fine. From what I can tell shes a beast. Im not going to risk a spin out cause I dont have torque arms. I thought it would surely have the 14mm axle but it doesnt.
This motor has alot of promise. It kinda has the behavior of a high speed wound 5302 or 5303. It just sucks up power and makes heat but for its size and weight im impressed. I think it needs an extra turn or two to slow it down abit and it will pick up even more torque in the process. It should increase the resistance a little bit and stop the controller from shoving amps down its throat. I think Justin should order some more and play around with the winding count. Its currently 10x6 . Alot of parallel wires and they are short. Low resistance!
The surface area of the motor is huge. But what im concerned about is motor width. The side cover make the motor seem kinda wide. Which makes me think that the windings arent that close to the side overs so I think it will be insulated by the extra air between the cover and the windings allowing windings to heat up more. There will be a delayed temp change so what you feel on the side cover is s faux reading and the motor temp will be a bit higher than what you feel.
