I guess it's the heat or something which loosens up the adhesive of the magnets.

Well this weekend our local hotshoe had the same thing happen to him. The mag has come loose. The motor will be sent back to Reedy, but this is not a positive trend. When our local fast guys are having issues with this motor the rest of the racers seem to shy away. We are also experencing alot of comm wear compared to other mods that we run...has anyone else been experencing such wear...kinda a seration type wear on the brush and comm...we still use the 766's in it but we have not been overly pleased with the KR.

I should be receiving my Kr based motor soon. I'm glad to hear about these problems so that I am aware of them. Since the Kr is primarily R&D'd by the factory drivers, Mike Reedy himself probably personally ensured the motors they get are perfect. The production motors everyone else gets may not get the same attention to detail. Based on everyone's posts, it would seem so.

Jeff I have seen the same wear on mine also. It looks like you have been running a serrated brush.

Difuser, that is exactly what I am seeing. Is this just the wear characteristic of the motor or is there something that can be done to get a better wear? The motor is a tocket but needs alot of attention to keep it up to speed. I undertand mod motrs need more work at times but the same wind in a Top Based mod (Peak, Orion) does not show that kind of wear...but none of them seem to wear quite like the D5. That thing is apowerhouse but it wears out brushes in a hurry...

Would love to get the KR working better any tips would be great!

Jeff,

I spoke to Mike Reedy at the NATS regarding this same problem. He mentioned to tweak the Positive spring. Making it stiffer so that the brush dosen't bounce as much. I believe in the 180 degree but don't quote me on that one. The motor makes so much RPM that this seems to help with the comm wear.

Hope this helps,
Mark

It turns out one of my magnets is slightly loose. Should I send it back to Reedy or just put some Ca to keep the magent glued?

Its really a shame since this was the fastest motor I've tried.

Send it back. The more that Reedy Modifieds receives back will give them a clue to pay more attention to their motors.

I wish I could but customs will charge me like $30 in taxes once I get it back. I will try gluing it back for now and if that doesn't work I guess I have no choice.

I don't think CA will take the heat, we boil our off road tires to loosen them up. Use Industrial Epoxy or something like that. Wrap the arm in a piece of paper to hold the magnet in place till the epoxy dries.
