  1. on these bafang rear wheel drive, is it possible to change out the crankset with something else? I presume there is a cadence sensor in the bottom bracket but it should accommodate most cranks right?

  2. I got error 7 mean the motor have a problem .. what should I do ?

  3. Do you know how to change axle and where can order parts thanks

  4. My torque arms came loose while I went to throttle from a dead stop. I got luck with the wires etc. But the two motor hub bolts are misaligned now by a few degrees. Can I use two wrenches to align them back? Thanks

  5. I have the same rear hub motor with tire which doesnt turn round. The body of the motor turns like an egg. Obviously the axis has a problem.
    The motor kit was bought from com_buy_pleased on ebay. No help and no support from chineese com_buy_pleased As mechanical engineer I now have testet the axis which has a bump.

  6. Why would you break this open like a brute once a year just to check that didn’t break it opening it up??? seems a useless but risky maintenance to me…

  7. Hello Is it possible to provide the coil winding diagram of the 48 volt 250 watt hub motor?

  8. Hey great video I just wanted to know what size gear pulled do I need to do this my self thanks in advance?

    smh you are wrong way

  10. No need for gear puller just hit the axle and the cover will be loose

  11. lid comes off at 6:00

    I have the same problem. Could i use 6 Inch gear puller ? for my HUB motor 36V 500W. thanks

  13. If you have a sensorless controller (no need for hall sensors) you can take advantage of the extra space to add larger gauge phase wires👍 when u only need 3 wires instead of 8 it makes things easier

    Not Nuts,.. Cap screws.

  15. Hammer and chisel merchant beat the shit out of it then use the puller lol how to funk you’re motor he can nearly put it back together lol it will never run again

  16. Topsoil Depletion Awareness (closing the loop) January 9, 2021 @ 11:01 pm

    Can u take off the wheel hub?

  17. Jose's E. Bike Emporium January 9, 2021 @ 11:07 pm

    thanks for the look inside.

  18. Is it possible to upgrade the motor on my ebike?

  19. You need a bearing puller. much easier, less hammering electrical – also fixes the issue if you have the wire coming out the end of the axle

    Brother.. I am having a problem getting the plate back on… No matter how many times I hit it with a mallet, it still stays approx 2-3mm off from secure contact. Can you advise me here?

  21. Clinton Boucheix January 9, 2021 @ 11:11 pm

    How would you remove and replace the bearings? I have some worn bearings on mine that’s making this constant clicking.

  22. bittasweet symphony January 9, 2021 @ 11:14 pm

    would that wheel work with the cassette side plate not fitted?
    so like it is in the video, but the other side plate missing!>?

  23. Mahmoud Ghazayel January 9, 2021 @ 11:17 pm

    Hey mate… I’m having a problem with a similar hub motor.
    The wheel, even if it’s off, won’t be turning smoothly.
    I’ve followed your instruction, and everything seems to be good.

    But I think the problem is the friction between the motor box and the magnets.

    here is an image to show you where, I think, is the problem. (In yellow)


    Any idea you can give me on how to fix it?

  24. how to install converter72volts to12volts
