The magic smoke came out of this motor today... It was a really fun ride up until then...put about 10 miles on until I attempted a large hill climb home to my truck.
was climbing a decent hill and it was doing it fine then all of a sudden it stopped I looked down to see a dark cloud of smoke bellowing out of the shaft/sprocket of the motor. It happened so fast I couldn't even get my gloves off to his record on the camera, by the time I got the camera out smoke was done. I then noticed the motor had zero power and it was making a really high pitched noise instead of moving, shortly after this while trying to walk the bike and feather the throttle to help me move, one of the motor phases melted right thru the insulation an melted nicely. It was the green phase
Right now the bike is sitting in the woods since it was too muddy and hilly to get it out, im not sure if the motor or controller failed, but after a motor phase melted it seemed like the controller was still trying to work.
Still not sure how to get it out of the woods without a quad tow, I took the battery and camera off of it but controller and motor still worth a bit of $$
