New Stator For My Ride1up Core 5
#1
Smile 
Hi Folks,

Posted this on another forum as well. Hope to get the assistance here. Smile

I'm not a very handy ebike enthusiast. Don‘t really know the inner workings of an ebike, I just like riding them.

Anyway, was riding my Core-5 that has around 1200 miles on it, and suddenly it made this strange grinding sound every time I engaged the throttle or PAS. Visited Ride1up’s support page and read the instructions on motor noises. Also sent the required videos to support.

Support came back a day later saying my Bike was out of warranty ( March 2021 purchase date) and I needed a new Stator for $300. They also linked a video on how to remove the Stator which showed instructions on how to remove the motor from the bike.

l‘m still not sure what a Stator is. Is it the whole motor? Support said it is one whole unit so I think they will send me a new motor. Also, is it easy to install? Since I’m out of warranty, is there better, cheaper, and easier aftermarket replacement I can buy or should I just bite the bullet and spend the 300 bucks? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Cardiobiker

It appears that it's an ignition electromagnetic plate.

Can't say if this will work for your model. I have no understanding of ebikes.

If it has failed at 1200 miles, I would question the quality. Maybe you just happen to be unlucky, or maybe it is poor quality.

If it was me, I might replace the stator or motor once. If it fails again in another 1200 miles, I would look for an alternative.

If you haven't used them, it is difficult to know which of the alternatives are decent quality.

You can buy conversion kits. You may be able to buy just the parts you need, Then you need to look into which parts are compatible.
