Here is the motor I ordered: http://www.ebay.com/itm/150836970858?_t ... EBIDX%3AIT
I hope it fits without modifications, just don't feel like fabricating right now lol

I would be interested in a 100T sprocket too. Do they give discounts if you buy more then one?

I may have to follow in your footsteps soon. 10 months ago (!) our son was riding two-up with his friend on his MX500 (48V, 50 amp controller) and said "something smelled funny". Of course they kept riding... When they were done I went into the garage to plug it in and smelled the carnage and the motor was untouchable. This is after two years of abuse with the extra battery and bigger controller.what 50amp controller are you running and where can i get one?
After cooling down it still seems to run fine, maybe a little down on power but not too much. It definitely gets hot pretty fast so on its way out. I am shocked that almost a year later after the overheating incident and it is still hanging in there.
One of the reasons to upgrade soon is he is getting the itch to move up to my 36V Mongoose electric bike. So if he takes that over then I get the MX500 and will surely kill that old motor in no time.

Most of our trips around the neighborhood are only a couple miles so no need for long run times, but I am thinking the amp draw is killing my SLAs faster than expected. I am getting about a year and a half of good run time then they fall off a cliff. I keep them charged between runs, popping them on the charger for top-up once every two weeks.
