Novak has an replacement/upgrade/exchange program for all of our BL motors and speed controls:
NOVAK'S BRUSHLESS MOTOR EXCHANGE PROGRAM: Customers returning a Novak brushless motor on the list below for non-warranty exchange can request a different model Factory-Remanufactured brushless motor. The additional service fee is only $10. For example, a customer can return a #3405 Velociti 5.5R motor and request a Factory-Remanufactured #3413-2 SS13.5 Pro motor for an exchange price of $45 ($35 + $10 fee). Indicate model and Service Code (M) on Non-Warranty Service Form.
I saw this on another site and thought it would be useful to some of you. This is a good deal and you have to give them credit!
