    By that I hope you don't mean she busted a seal and started leaking. If so, it's back to the shop with her!

    All fixed now. PaulWay and I pulled the motor out on Saturday and located the failed bearing. It is the large one on the "bell" of the outrunner, often called the skirt bearing.
    It appears that it had NO GREASE! That had caused the failure. Now when I ordered the replacement the reason seemed to present it self. The original bearing was not rated to 6000 rpm so I am guessing that it generated enough heat to liquefy the grease.

    I now have a new German bearing rated for the rpm and PaulWay helped me fit it tonight. It is all back together with no odd noises and running fine.

    So tonight I trailered the bike to a Canberra Riders meet and had some coffee and rode home. The ride home was approx 25 km and I made 20 of those.
    Issue was battery. With the pack being constructed over 16 months ago and only really getting run now it looks like I may have a group that has some damaged cells. According to the cellogs it is the 7th in the string.

    I will spend some time on the weekend identifying which ones they are... seeing how easy it will be to replace them and do so (hopefully).

    When fully charged that bike takes off like nobody's business, and it's still got the controller wound back.

    The one thing we didn't do was check the motor temperature. Ah well, another day.

    Hope it works out, Tony! Have fun,

    Paul
