Thanks for the offer of the gears
any yes Ilia has been amazing to deal with, he shipped out the new clutch within a few hours on me sending him the funds, he also threw in a new key,circlip and grease for free!! what a top guy, so yes anybody who is reading this thread and needs a new clutch get in contact with him, very highly recommended.
As far as other hub motors I have the BMX which has the Puma motor in it, I also have another spare motor in a 26 inch wheel with a BMC copy very early design, that one also needs a new clutch I think so may be in contact with Ilia again
its funny because i took it off the bike a few years back because it was slipping and couldn't find the problem, at the time I didn't know the 1 way bearinig was in the clutch
now I know I think that motor can be repaired
as I had tested the usual sun gear slipping, rotor slipping etc, so that will resurrect that motor, that motor was a torque motor not a high speed wind but the wheel was cool as it was spoked in a radial array.
The other bike is an old school xlyte X5 5304, a monster of a motor and the bike that I am using at the moment whilst the BMC is out of action, I also have the KMX of course with the modified Currie unit, so in total 4 working ebikes
The beauty of the BMC or MAC is just how light they are and so very powerful at low voltages, riding my X5 in to work its like a tank, its a good motor but the weight is almost unbearable especially when you compare it to a geared motor, I am not interested in going over 30mph or having mental acceleration this is why I love the BMC/MAC in my opinion its they very best compromise any ebiker can get, until you try one you don't know what you are missing out on.
