Reading about all you brushed-motor-riders....does anyone know if the Hubmotor ever needs to be cleaned since the hub assembly also includes the brake assembly, pads and all...no??
Funny that I started thinking about this now, approaching 1300 km.... ;-)
I'm not sure but I thought the motor and brake assemblies were 2 separate items connected on the same axle. If this is the case then the brake dust should not get in the motor.
The rear brake drum is integral with the hub motor case on the e-max - admittedly a dumb design. But the motor is in a sealed case. There are no holes between the drum brake case and the motor case. The axle, of course, has a seal.
There are plenty of other things to worry about on your e-max!
My e-max brakes have plenty of lining and pad material left at 2950 miles of hilly stop-and-go riding.
