Bafang told that the motor in 500W version can't afford the 52V battery. that's why it burnt. We haven't realized it. if Bafang in US can't solve the motor issue in your side, Please contact us. we will support. Please don't worry.
we will suggest customers to take 48V which is fit better than 52V for the motor.

I have some sad news to report. My weight plus the hills of San Francisco finally proved to be too much for the Bafang motor. The display powers on, the battery is full, but neither the throttle nor the pedal assist are getting any power from the motor.
I'll be shipping the motor to a Bafang support person in Las Vegas to see what the specific cause of death was, and let you all know in case it is helpful information.
I want to say that this is not Frey's fault and I still think Bafang is the best motor to use. I don't know yet what happened to it, but in Bafang's defense, I've attached a photo from the top of the hill that defeated it. This is one of the Twin Peaks, the highest points in the city of San Francisco.
