I have checked everything but this sound wont dissappere
i have checked the:
-Bearings (all good)
-Cleaned can and checked for shims on magnets (none)
-Re -oiled bearings.
-One magnet was loose but seemed to pop back into place.
And it still sounds like crap any idea's of what it might be or what i could do to fix it
It's the magnet. They are epoxied into place. If it's loose, it will float around on ya until it is re-affixed to the can.
I had major problems outdoors with my KR. I think that when a small stone or something else gets in them, it gets knocked loose easily. This was years ago when the KR was the nrwest motor from them.
Contact reedy and see if they can help you out.
