Repair/Change dual 5055 or go single 6384/6374?

Hi all,

I am/was running the infamous dual 5055 kit from He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named for the last year, clocking ~700km and just now I decided to speed up through a gravel patch and now one of my motors seems busted. When I rotate the motor I can hear and feel the motor jamming and scratching from within. I guessed some small rock managed to infiltrate, but I can’t unscrew the motor to look inside of it.

Now I am presented with 2 choices, I either get an other 5055 270kv motor to keep my exact same setup or use my paris trucks laying around and put a single 6384/6374 190kv motor on it.

What would you guys do in my situation?

Get the same 5055 I already have : https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000545645256.html

Or step up in size, but single with this 6384 190kv : https://flipsky.net/products/bldc-belt-motor-6384-4000w-for-electric-skateboard?variant=29756675358780
