Think of this as an oportunity to upgrade.
Dont worry - we have all eaten major shit.
You get that full face helmet I we were talking about yet >????
ah,,,,, the ride of shame
Nothing like pedaling an electric bike eh?
That is an easy fix.
Remove the wheel
Set the wheel down with the freewheel side down
Protect the axle with a pad or something
mark the lid for orientation (so you can put it back clocked to the same spot)
Remove all of the socket head cap screws holding the lid on
put your knees on the sides of the tire and try to "pop" the magnet ring down
The lid and stator should stay up
You may need to go around and break the seal by wedging in a very small screwdriver etc.
Once it is open please be VERY CAREFUL - the magent is strong enough to take the ends of your fingers off.......
Pull the stator out and away from the magnet ring
Set it on your workbench
Slide the cover off and set it aside
Take pictures of the phase covers.
De-solder the yellow, green, and blue phase wires
throw them away
Check the hall wires, if they are hosed replace them.
Find some 12awg teflon wire (I can send you some if you are in a pinch)
lace the 12awg wire down the axle and solder it back up to the phases
Mark them right away so you dont forget - yellow blue green
Now take the stator and very carefully slide it back into the magnet ring.
You are going to want to keep your knees on the wheel to keep it from JUMPING up to meet the stator
hold the stator only by the axle - the magnetic strength is HUGE
Try to slow it down as much as possible when it sucks it in
It will go BANG - dont worry
Slide the cover back over and screw it down in a star pattern
No need to go crazy with the fastners - tight is tight enough.
That is enough info to get you rolling.
Search through my threads - I have talked about it before
P.S. Dont even think about using the stock 16g wire - it is NOT good enough for what you are doing. This was perfect timing. 14awg is acceptable but 12 is better
