i broke a cb xd hub but it was the bearings that went and turned in to mush so it would change gear all on its own lol.

imo the ratchet system would be better but as it is a ebike not sure if it will make much difference at all tbh other than the noise it makes.

like everything with moving parts it needs a clean and lube inside the hub so id check both the bearings and paws for wear and see if thats a problem or not.

you got 2 years warranty to kill it tho and get a new one ;) cb even offers a hole back wheel if i could not get the xd hub off.
