I have a 2003 EVT4000e. I've had two motors with problems in about 1500KM of use.
My first motor developed lots of drag and it turned out it got water inside (and it was only
outside in one storm). I got it replaced at a nearby dealer for $500. Wish I had kept the motor
now...since now I need a part from it!
My second motor, I was noticing a lot of drag again so I took it apart and two of
the magnets are cracked (on opposite sides), and one piece of one magnet was raised up probably causing the drag.
My question is, what should I do from here? Should I just take the cracked ones out and
put it back together and try it? Or superglue back the bigger pieces and just remove the small
Or cough up another $750 for the newer 3000W motor? How do I know it will not die in 500 miles? This is getting ridiculous.
Does anybody have a 1500 motor shaft with intact magnets they would like to sell?
