hub motor mounting

Post by joeA » Mon Jun 19, 2017 10:04 pm

the question is simple...

are the square mounts on hub motor trucks a universal design in the industry???

the hub motor i will be buying calls for a square truck mount... the hub motor i am buying comes with its own trucks... but i need 11 inch wide trucks... therefore i will have to source the trucks from a different company... is it guaranteed to fit as long as it has that square shaped thing that holds the hub motor in place? or do different companies do it differently... the last thing i need is to go through sourcing 11 inch hub motor trucks... to find they do not fit the hub motor i buy.. or most other hub motors...

i have also seen flanges that hold hub motors in place... are these flanges a universal shape and design???

thanks all

There is no universal design with hub motors. I think ones that screw onto the hanger are most common. But theres no standard. If your hubs don't screw onto the axle (in which you can use red locktite or expoxy to permanently attach it), then you'll need to recreate the mounting structure on any other truck.
