Those torque arms look like they cost more than the motor
No just the BMS battery TAs for $15 a pair which look pretty decent although I wouldn't trust them on a high powered build.
I ordered 2 pairs and they were out of stock but it showed in stock on the website. They waited for them to come in before my order shipped but didn't inform me until I emailed them then they offered the option to send the other items and they would ship the TAs in my next order
In the end I just waited and eventually my order was shipped. Now I am having this email exchange with them and they are asking for clearer photos and replying with hard to understand messages wow what a pain in the rear
Just to clarify a bit, the 3 screws in the cover thread into the clutch ASM which rotates w/ the motor(relative to the housing). So w/ the main housing secure, striking one bolt the direction to loosen(lefty loosey), should start the cover. After the cover is unscrewed, the 2-piece clutch lifts off to access the axle flange. Try to lift the 2 clutch pieces off together or note how it comes apart. It has 3 rollers held w/ tiny springs and if it septerates, you will have to fiddle w/ it a bit to get it back together. The springs have to be just right. Don't ask how I know
The cover can be a real bear on used motors. The reason is, when the free whl. is pedaled, the direction of force tightens it on the stub.

Those screws only hold the clutch to the side-plate, so you wouldn't normally need to remove them except that you need the holes to turn the plate.
Motomech and d8veh,
Thanks guys, I was wondering about the screws to leave in or not, I think for my needs I will leave 2 in and put a cap head bolt in the 3rd for loosening the cover.
I was waiting to see what BMS Battery would say to fix the issue but it seems like they are being evasive, so far it has taken a long string of emails to get them to even recognise the issue but still no offer of any kind of solution
