I’ve been searching all over the internet for some kind of answer to this question, but can't seem to find one. Maybe this forum will help... especially since there's that guy who played with a G1 a few threads down.
I ordered an electric skateboard off of eBay. The model is apparently the “G-1” or “G1-2000” by the “WTFF Group.” Unfortunately, this company doesn’t have a website—the one they reference in the manual a lot (wtffgroup.com) is defunct. My best guess on what happened here is that this company went out of business, and someone’s dumping all their inventory on eBay for cheap prices.
Anyway, I’m looking mainly for two things: (1) replace the wheels (currently polypropylene, I believe) with something much less noisy, so probably rubber; (2) buy a few extra drive belts since I’ve already broken one and don’t have any more spares. The problem is, given that this board seems very non-standard or at least unpopular, I have no way of telling what parts I should order. So I was hoping that you might be able to help me work out what I should buy, if I can try to give you the right information.
The drive belt should be easy enough. It has “KAINA DRIVINGBELT.COM HTD 384-3M ##” printed on it, in three rows. In the first row, the “##” is 19; in the second, it’s 20; in the third, it’s 21. So I’m confused as to what this means (is it 19, 20, or 21?), and one site I was looking through seemed to not have anything in the the 19–21 range for 384-3M driving belts. So, could you help me figure out what belt I should order, and where I could get it from?
For the wheels, things are more complicated, of course. There are three of them; two “normal” ones in the front and one with ridges in the back connecting it to the motor (I think this is called the “drive wheel”?). The manual that came with the skateboard lists “5 in diameter” as the only information. This site has some pretty good pictures of the wheels, in particular the back wheel. I could also take some measurements, but I’m not sure which ones to take, so hopefully you could help me out there.
Thanks for your time!
