Motor rewind

Has anyone tried rewinding the stock motor to give more HP. There by getting more speed. It seems a waste to be throwing out these perfectly good motors. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Its good that if you have find out such a excellent use of the motors.I have never heard about this.But now I will definitely try this.

[QUOTE=wmgrd;12145]Try changing the settings on your controller prior to spending the money and having your motor rewined. Changing the settings will give you more motor performance. I had posted the settings on a tread about 3 weeks ago on reprogramming a GEM controller. The motor rewined you might as well have it rebulit at that time.


How can I change settings on my controller??? thanks

Rewinding motors is an expensive job. This is done on locomotives and other large generator and traction motors. Our motor dealer said rewinds are always over $1,000. Consider the aftermarket choices for both motors and controllers.
