How wide is the pie rim ? I have a cast scooter rim here (18" I think) and the rim is quite wide, though the casting weighs a tonne with thick rim and solid "spokes"
Have you opened it up and tested the halls directly or just tested at the leads ? I guess you know how to test them properly and that you're getting some voltage back but not varying as expected (ie not just a broken wire) I haven't heard of any other hall failures just yet, not that it's any consolation but fingers crossed it's an isolated case.
These halls are supposedly the good ones too. I know I've given the wheel in my fighter (which presumably come from the same production run) a right pounding and yet yours which is brand new and ridden on the street fails almost out of the box - I don't know why

Now unfortunately, it looks like I have blown out the bearings or the axel is loose or somehting.
When you hold the tire and woble it, it kind of clunks, and moves heaps side to side. I assume that would be just the bearings?
But I did notice a little woble/clunk when I put the tire onto it, like the axle moved slightly in and out.
Has anybody body else in Melbourne got one of these motors who is confident and has the time to help me replace the bearings and look into what else it might be?
I tried replacing halls in my 5304 around 4 months ago, and I really messed it up as it is still not running and nobody knows why, so I dont even want to touch or open this motor.
I would be happy to pay for the help to change the bearings.
