Just purchased a Raptor 2 from a forum member here: https://www.electric-skateboard.builders/t/sold-raptor-2-for-sale-in-canada-used-but-in-great-condition/60802/7
Upon inspection, it looks like one of the hubmotors was unseated, causing some torsion and fraying some of the phase wires and severing most of the sensor wires. This isn’t a knock on the seller, he seems like a really good dude and likely had no idea. I can even see a little of how it’s unseated from one of his pictures.
Here is the carnage:
So questions I have: -Is this something I can salvage? My thoughts are the motor was likely running but sensorless. Of course the open phase leads seem dangerous.
-If salvageable, can anyone help me take apart this can? I looked to see if there was any guide/video to taking apart this particular hubmotor to no avail.
-Is there an easy way to remove the urethane? I saw Jason’s video on Youtube, however I don’t have access to any kind of tools of that nature (clamp, bench, hammer, steel plate) since I live in a tiny apartment in Manhattan, lol.
I’m hoping that there’s a way I can simply open up this motor, resolder and protect the wires, then put everything back together again.
Thank you! -Andrew
