Default AC motor maintenance

Is there anything that can be done to help prolong the life of an AC motor? Any service tips? I've got a 2010 Star Street Legal EV. Thank you.

Default Re: AC motor maintenance

Mike,
I see no one replied to your question, here is my best answer for you.
Having worked in my younger days in an electric motor repair shop I have some knowledge. I purchased a 2016 Star Diablo LSV new (48volt ac), 3500 miles later thereís no maintenance for the motor itís self. I would recommend changing the gear oil in the differential. The drain plug should be magnetic, so clean off the metal shavings from the run in. Next I refilled it with synthetic 75w / 140 gear oil. The tag on the axle says refill with .65 liters, or about 22 ounces.
Hope this helps.

Hey Buster, thanks for the reply! It seems like there is not a lot of love and support for these STAR vehicles, I appreciate your response! I am in the process of replacing the batteries in mine, I need to replace a front tire and a cracked windshield and my car will be like new. My rearend seems to have a little clunk in it when I take off, changing the rear gear oil is a good suggestion. Thanks again.
