Also, can you show pictures of the failed bearings, and the spot on the shaft that the failed bearing was? You can tell a lot about what caused bearing failure from looking at a failed bearing. You can tell if it was angular loading, over speed, foreign matter, side loading, etc etc just from a little peak at the bearing and shaft.
With out first understanding the failure, you can't intelligently begin to improve a design.
The first picture, with motor right next to the shaft that's attached to the bell, has the bearing right in the center. It's silver colored. That's the only bearing that failed and the inner silver part wobbles (What I call the inner race). The shaft goes into the motor as shown - just imagine it being horizontally transposed in its current position and there you go.
I'm really hesitant about putting the motor back together since it was a huge pain to take it off. I'd really like to avoid that at all costs and just have everything fixed before reassembly.
How about a video showing the bearing's symptoms? "Wobbling" is a dynamic thing.

I love my electric scooter. I traveled along an epic trail with an epic lack of people (It was 27 degrees fahrenheit today, ha.), crossed the border, went to a store, found out it got dark much earlier than I thought it would, spontaneously duct-taped my halogen light on (Thank god I brought it), and then pierced through the darkness at what felt like the speed of light on the way back. It was just...
There's no way you can get that experience with a car, and I've owned and have recently driven cars.
I traveled about 12 miles today in all.
