That's what I thought when I looked after you mentioned using a file, it seems to go on one or two threads and then stops dead and both screws go on the other side perfect... I do know that sometimes if the wire is not straight it causes miss alignment of the screw but not in this case, I have a M12 1.25mm Thread pitch die on its way so fingers crossed it can restore the threads so I can test this motor!It looks OK
For general bike maintenance, from my experience it is best to replace all that is rusted and or worn, gear cables and brake cable to actual components... If you have money then the local bike shop or find someone willing to replace parts for small sums of money but be aware some of these guys could be using dodgy parts! Me I use a combination of bike shop in the winter as my hands are more effective in the spring and summer and youtube - until last week I had never replaced a gear cable in my entire biking life even when I was once fit and healthy nor a rear derailleur and I did both and fine tuned it to perfection with a little know how from youtube or try googling Sheldon Brown bike repair.I am new to all this
Just google,'How to adjust front deraileur', you'll get all the help you need.I forgot to mention on last post, I have a problem with my gears, When I try move the gear on left hand side on to high, which moves the the front sprocket, I cannot get the lever to turn enough. I have turned the screws that helps move the guide for the chain on to the sprocket and the lever then goes to the top, but when I then move gear on left to low then the cable goes all slack
I am new to all this, how do I rectify this problem.
Good... You would be surprised how well a new gear cable improves shifting... When I did the rear derailleur I tried to reuse the old cable but after a few attempts at trying I decide to change the cable and OMG it work near perfect first time!managed to get it to work
I will look at getting a new cable this week then, I have fixed it to a degree, but was struggling to get it to stay in the high gears today.So YOSE are now sen

I only bought the kit to try out the hub motor but have since sold the controller, V12L and swapped the 1-4 cable for the seperate phase/hall one. My bike originally set up with Q128c and KT 20a dual volt model non julet cables , so a quick swap over of hub job done.Where did you get the new controller from? I assume it's old wiring
At 48v I have had it to just a tad over 28mph with 20a controller and was spinning out at 48/11 gearing. That high speed isn't of interest to me but wanted to see how fast I could push it.Your controller sounds great @Nealh. I'm fairly satisfied with the orginal setup incluing the solder mod but wouldn't mind a little more power on steeper hills etc. To be honest, after having done 800+ km, I wouldn't mind a little more speed as well, suddenly 33-35 km/h doesn't feel that fast anymore!
A question for all of you with the rear kit: Do you sometimes here an erratic and quite faint "clicking" sound from the motor? I thought it was coming from the bike first but the sound is only there while the engine is engaged. The sound also seems to come and go.
