Great news chaps!
 

Using my knowlage gained from building custom motors for electric R/C racing cars, I have got to the bottom of the problem with the 2008 motors.

To keep this short, all faults can be rectified and all motors regardless of condition can be repaired, even as far as sorting the problem areas before your new gun is used.

 

The solution to the problem is here. Don't miss out!

Do we all have to send three easy payments of $9.95 before you'll tell us...?

C'mon dude, spill.

It is true!
 

Early 2008's like mine don't suffer this problem, however a change was made in production and this can be identified by the colour of the pistol grip base plate (early 2008 &2007 models it's black and subsequent 2008 models it's a lighter colour).

Anyway, a friend dropped his 2008 on my lap with what is now the usual problem and after stripping the motor down the answer was staring me in the face.

So, I applied the methods used in hand building high performance racing motors and as if by magic it came back to life (I'd like to add there was no magic used just pure skill!).

Also taking the motor apart mean't that I could remove a few shims and allow the motor end float to be adjusted as per 2007 models (3mm ball bearing fitted as well) which meant the gun no longer sounded like an angle grinder!

 

So, if you want your motors sorting drop me p.m. and I'll be only to pleased to help you all out. I have all the tools and equipment to do all repairs from brushes to a complete re-wind. This also means that life can be breathed into any motor fitted to any PTW or aeg.

 

I'll post a price menu asap.

Hooray! Another person finds a way to use this forum to make money out of something Systema should be doing in the first place!

Best of luck fella.

I'd also like to add that the problems with these motors have nothing what so ever to do with the brushes, however I did find the hoods to be tight and cause the bruhes to bind.
This can be cured by removing the brushes and giving the hoods a tweek with a pair of long nosed plyers.

This is only a minor fault and will not sort the main issue!
