[WTS] [US] Carvon V4 *needs repair* $150OBO

Selling my Carvon v4 direct drives with about 1,500 miles on them. I’m being very transparent here that these need some work. In desperate need of maintenance; hence the low price, including:

  • Bearing replacement on one motor (extra bearings included)
  • stripped can screw removal (extra screws included, recommend dremmel and extract with flathead)
  • stripped collar screw replace (no extra screws included but seem to be M4 30mm. m3 is too small which is what I tried)

Would do all this myself except I can’t remove the can on one motor due to stripped screw (no dremmel for me) Rides super smooth and powerful once repaired and has no trouble getting my 120lbs to 40mph with room to spare.

-Also, the can on one motor seems to be contacting the stator; unclear fix. I could not find the problem from extensive looking. Makes a knocking sound. I can even include a gear puller for free, just will raise shipping a bit due to weight.

WHAT’S INCLUDED:

  • Carvon v4 dual dd 5.5mm bullet connectors (broken magnet in can, not big issue)

  • Randal 35 base plate with RipTide urethane and pivot

  • Stock Funbox base plate with RipTide pivot

  • Screws and bearings

  • Worn protective urethane wrap

  • 4x ABEC11 97mm classic flywheels for an extra $60. Not interested in selling unless included with the dd. Many miles but good condition, no chunks.

If you want a small project to work on, these might be for you. Any questions, just ask.

$150 shipped takes them.

how long would it take to repair these whats the point in buying a motor with 1,500 miles

The point of them? They’re powerful direct drives at a very low price point that simply need some love and care. I’m including most of the parts needed to fix them up.

Yes they have some miles and wear and tear on them, hence why they need some work. Replacing the bearings is a quick job but there’s an issue on one of the motors where I think the stator is making contact with something in the can. I have not found any wear or damage on the magnets or windings or anywhere for that matter from this which is strange but it’s one of the things that needs fixed. Could even be something else other than stator contact but idk. That’s also why they’re cheap and a project to work on.

could they be used on a offroad board?

Not reccomended for 2 reasons.

One, only abec core wheels can go on these until someone decides to make different adapters.

Two, they’re 110kv which would leave you with little torque at anything larger than 110mm or so. I found 97mm to be a good balance.
