Motor covers : protect the motor


#1

Has anyone use a motor cover? Most of the eboards here i see a naked motor. No cover.

Is a motor cover necessary ?
I find this on thhingiverse, anyone try this?


#2

Motor covers insulate heat and impede natural air cooling while skating, so I wouldn’t use it personally.


#3

I get what u mean, but if we dont cover it all the way, just the side which is facing the street, it would be half of the motor covered, and i think the air can flow through there, right? Or am i missing something?


#4

if you’re covering half, it kind of defeats the point which is to prevent small scratches on the motor. It’s largely cosmetic.


#5

Don’t forget about debris getting caught between the motor can and the cover. That could be a thing. One piece of road junk could ruin your day.


#6

A small rock got lodged in between my belt and belt cover once and carved a line down my belt almost splitting it into two…

Covers are largely unnecessary and can lead to problems.
