Ignore all the Youtube videos showing these motors being packed with grease, watch this link for the correct way to lubricate at the end. IMHO.

Thanks, very detailed video. Not a bad idea to strip the motor down to clean and oil it once in a while. I wonder if there is a set amount of miles/km's before this is recommended?

I open my BBSHD once a year to inspect, clean and apply new grease. I have averaged 6K miles a year for the last 6 years. Other than a failed free-wheel clutch and a glitchy controller I have had no problems. Keep them clean, inspect them once in a while, don't thrash them needlessly and they are surprisingly durable.

I built a mid drive, went with a luna bbshd. Gotta say you were right on several accounts man.
I still like my mid drive for just flats and short commutes with no hills though but am loving this bbshd ;)

Ride Safe! :cool:

It's so easy to have a great ebike... just a little intimidating for people that know nothing about bikes or motors.
