That is good to know.I have a 2017 Ultra with the nylon gears and I still haven't had a problem. And I do my best to break it every time I ride it. Have had the metal gears in my garage for years but I won't swap them until the nylon fails. Zero noise , presently and I like that.
We are re-launching the M600 based city commuter from last year. Potentially up to 750W nominal (depending on testing), so will be fairly awesome performance for the motor.As mentioned running high watts seems to be an issue with the nylon gears on any electric motor. Other than the peet ones I guess which are a higher modulus material meant for those applications of high stress and shear.
I am glad that the M600 for future production will feature a higher modulus gear as that is the system I have in my sights to upgrade to. What is the type of bike that you have under design with it @pushkar?
I'd be happy if somebody would come up with a gear similar/as strong as the original 510 gear. That's all I'd need, as well as many others that will never push that motor anywhere near it's limits....
Great question.May I answer a question with a question? Why run a motor rated at 160nm to 200nm?
