I'll dig out the link. But its over on the UK forum on Pedelecs. There are two other users excluding myself that have had the clutch lock up and had to free it. D8veh and Catsnapper.full-throttle wrote:Link? Would be interested to know who these 'most' people are.
Seals are ok, better than any other hub motor I know of. If you watch carefully Justin's presentation you will realise that seals are not a problem.
The axle support on the RHS is poorly designed - mine snapped.. when hit by a car at 80kph.
Jay-UK had the axel snap after 500 miles - Also on Pedelecs. He swapped to a Mac becasue of the issue from Cell_man.
I don't want to argue with you on the topic of what is good and bad, you've been very helpful in the repair of mine and without your posts I would have been off road much longer.
I'm really not slating the motor at all. As I've said its a very very motor. For the cost when I brought it of £150 in a wheel delivered to the UK. Hideously cheap.
The seals are not that much of a problem but could be better. I will look at getting a few more for a replacements. Apart from the material or using a fabric / cardboard gasket it won't ever get much better. Its always the same with Rubber O ring gaskets. Or for any gasket. Onces the pressure is gone they deform and no longer seal as well.
I'm glad Bafang are progressing the motors and fixing some of the issues as outlined by Cwah.
