  1. Today I tore into my wife’s old KS14C to salvage the axle for @Smoother. The wheel ended up at the bottom of a lake on June 12, 2017 and was submerged for approximately 60 minutes. The wheel has been setting around my shop for the past 7 months. Upon removing the motor side covers I was shocked how much water had infiltrated the motor. Yes there is a huge difference between riding through puddles and completely submerging a wheel in water but my concern is any moisture entering the motor will cause a catastrophic failure. I plan to avoid any large puddles in the future.
  2. I have made a few including the KS 14C, KS 16S and Mten 3
  3. EUC Motors Are Not Waterproof!

    Removing the other bearing is a challenge. My ACM was the same way. I’ll get it off. That sounds feasible.
  4. EUC Motors Are Not Waterproof!

    Probably blew through them too.
  5. EUC Motors Are Not Waterproof!

    If your going to make me get out my glasses to read such small print............here you go: I don’t have an precise calculation of depth but the water was just below the roof top of my Dodge Ram which is 76” tall. The wheel was sitting in the back seat ...so maybe 2 feet deep? There are no physical rubber seal just a machined lip.
  6. EUC Motors Are Not Waterproof!

    I agree. It is a bit concerning though. 1mm or .0394
  7. A One in a Thousand Event

    Yes definately the tire, pedals and hangers and both shells. I certainly do now. Sounds like a good plan. Better you test it than me. I will see about having the axle pressed out this weekend.
  8. A One in a Thousand Event

    OMG is the KS14C axle attenuated. @Smoother I tore into the motor and was surprised how thin the axle walls are. The machined conduit through the axle really weakens it. No wonder they fracture so often. I still need to press out the axle. The bearings are shot. Once I remove the motor side covers water came flowing out. Can’t believe it has been over 7 months since the wheel went into the lake and all this moisture remains.
  9. ACM 1600 Anti Slip Pedal Studs

    I was tired of my feet slipping off the ACM 1600 pedals in the snow so I installed stainless steel studs today. They are actually like little sharp spikes that tenaciously grip the bottom of my shoes. Zero slippage even after riding through snow. I know @EUC Extreme has used something similar on his footplates with success so I gave it a try. This method could easily be adapted to all EUC pedals that have a honeycomb core with a removable metal cover. You do need to remove the anti slip tape to expose and remove the screws. Once the honeycomb structure is exposed you need to mark off the center of each row of pockets between the splines. The marks are then transferred to the cover plate to identify where the stud holes will be drilled. In this case the holes will be drilled at each intersected line. Each hole is then tapped and a stud screwed in. After a ride in the snow my feet never once slipped! What a secure feeling! The downside of installing the studs is the magnets no longer hold up the pedals. I used a simple velcro strap to solve the problem.
  10. ACM 1600 Anti Slip Pedal Studs

    Interested in my bathroom remodel? I can place a few wheels in there as a EUC project segway. Your feet are always locked in place so no slippage for you. Yes the mysterious rider with no face. I actually like the new Grand Tour lady driver better than Stig. You can atleast see a portion of her face.
  11. ACM 1600 Anti Slip Pedal Studs

    Thank you kindly. Thanks! I can easily make new side pads when necessary. I played around adding an additional magnet to strenghten the closure but there is now to great of width between the pedal and side plate. Just screwed at the moment. I may use a impact driver to flatten the protruding studs on the other side for security. Working on removing my wife’s KS 14C axle to send to Smoother. Lots of ideas. Not sure what BIG is considered in your book.
  12. ACM 1600 Anti Slip Pedal Studs

    Thanks. The strap is not a big issue right now. The spikes are so sharp that they are leaving small indentations in my ankle pads so that might be the next issue that needs to be resolved. Hope to get to the removal of your KS14C axle in the next few days.
  13. ACM 1600 Anti Slip Pedal Studs

    Thanks. The drill was on slow RPM but your right. Sorry for the double post. Not sure why. Hopefully a moderator can remove the duplicate post.
  14. Thanks. I did have to add a velcro strap to hold up the pedals. The self closing method would be great.
  15. Thanks. These are my ‘winter’ pedals. I’ll change back to the OEMs once spring hits. I actually don’t feel them through my shoes. Of course I am use to lying on a bed of nails at night.
  16. Your ankle injury @Marty Backe almost made me change my mind on this ACM modification. My new foot pedal spikes will keep my feet from slipping off the pedals in the snow but will tear the hell out of any body part that comes in contact with them. I’ll be posting the fabrication and hopfully riding details once everything in complete.

  18. 18l presale specs

    With the Z One and 18L becoming available around the same time your going to be extremely busy! Time to stock up on Monster drinks.
  19. My Tesla Triumphs, Tribulations, and Failures

    Helmet or no helmet...you still have a nice smile! Sorry about the nose.
  20. A One in a Thousand Event

    If you lived closer I would send you my wife’s old ( slightly waterlogged) KS14C. I’m sure the axle is fine, the shells, pedals and tire are new (2 hours TT).
  21. Ouch! I feel your pain! Maybe try out those reading glasses you’ve been reluctant to wear. Could have been worse. Think of the guy in Hawaii who also misread.

    Suppose @Jason McNeilcould have been deceptive and rode around wearing dark glasses carrying a cane.
  23. THE VIDEO THREAD!

    So many interesting elements to your new video. Excellent job Marty! Using relaxing music really emphasizes your slowmo shots. Like all of your videos a lot of time and effort went into this masterpiece!
