  • #2 Phillips Screwdriver


Process


Take your board and put it onto a box that is tall enough to lift the wheels off the table.



Use the 3mm Allen T-Handle to remove the six screws that hold on the battery box. Put these screws to the side.





Grab your board, holding the battery box to the deck. Flip it over and hang the tail off of the deck. Note that the board is very back heavy, make sure it doesn't flip off the table.




Grab the battery box and flip it over.


 

Notice that the motor wires coming out of the battery box will now be crossed.

 


Use the #2 Phillips Screwdriver to remove the 6 screws that hold the lid onto the battery box.

 

 

There is a light bead of silicon holding the lid to the battery box. Use the box cutter to cut this. Lift the lid off of the battery box.

 


Disconnect the battery from the motor controller before working on anything inside the battery box.



View the speed controller. Follow the wire from the motor you want to replace into the battery box. Note that the wiring you need to unplug is on the opposite side of the motor. 



Identify the 3 wires that connect the motor to the speed controller, along with the zip tie.   


Carefully use the utility knife to cut the zip tie. Do not sever the wires.

 

 

Disconnect the 3 wires. Note which colors match up. We suggest taking a picture before disconnecting.


 

Pull the grommet off the battery box.  



Repeat for the other motor.


Pull up on the rubber grommet holding the wiring harness to the box. Pull the battery box away from the motors.



Move your board so the tail and rear truck are hanging off the edge of the table.



Use the Skate Tool to secure one of the rear truck nuts. 


Note: In some of the photos below the battery box is flipped. Your battery box should still be open



Reach under the deck and direct the 3mm Allen T-Tool into the truck screw head. Remove the nut and screw and put them to the side.



Look straight down on the rear truck. Notice that between the motor and hanger you can access the truck nut.



Use the Skate Tool to hold this nut.



Use the 3mm Allen T-Tool to remove the truck screw. Put the rear truck screw and nut to the side. Repeat these steps for the truck screws and nuts on the other side of the rear truck.


At this time you should be able to completely remove your rear truck.


Orient your new rear truck into place.



Grab a truck screw and nut. Pass the screw through the board, risers, and truck base plate. Hand tighten the nut on the underside of the deck.




Repeat this for all four screws and nuts. The nuts that go between the motor and hanger will be a very tight fit for your fingers - make sure to orient the board in such a way where you can hold the nut in place as you screw in the screw.


Once all of the truck nuts nuts are are hand tight, use the Skate Tool and 3mm T-Handle Allen to tighten them firmly.




Reach under the deck and direct the 3mm Allen T-Tool into the truck screw head. Remove the nut and screw and put them to the side.




Connect the motor power wires to the controller using the yellow connector. When connected, tuck this connected down between the controller and partition wall.



Reconnect the red charge port connection. Notice where the notch is in the male and female sides of this connector. Make sure to interface them correctly.



Once connected, push the charge port connector down between the controller and side wall. Be careful not to pinch, tear, or stress the wires where they attach to the charge port. These wires can be fragile.



IMPORTANT: Take the wiring harness from the motors. Cross them. We will uncross them when we flip over the battery box during the final steps of install.


Make sure to push the battery box to the edge of the deck foam closest to the motors to ensure you are not pulling and putting stress on the motor wires.





Plug one of the motor's wiring harnesses into the wires coming off of the speed controller in this order.


Plug the motor wires into the speed controller. 

   

Make sure all connections are correct and firm.

 



Now complete the connections for the other motor.


Make sure that you are not crossing the bundles of wires coming out from underneath the speed controller.




Place the rubber grommets into their slots. Make sure to pull the battery box towards the motors so not to stress the motor wires.



Re-secure the zip ties around the wiring bundles.




Carefully use the box cutter to cut the zip tie. Do not sever the motor wires.
 




Once both grommets are in place, use a Phillips #2 Screwdriver and six lid screws to secure the lid to the battery box.


Notice that the countersinks are only on one side. This side should be facing up.

 


Flip the battery box over.


 


Grab the riser box. Grab the battery box and deck and flip the two, places them on the riser box.

 



 

Use the six battery screws to secure the battery box to the deck. Use a drop of loc-tite on each screws' threads.

 

  

Ready to ride!
