hi this motor is not the right type of motor i think you are better off sticking with the original motor as this is not easy to replace

I agree, stick with the standard C5 motor. If you want more speed, run it at 24V with a cooling fan on it.

I'm sure orginal is better, but gets harder to get every year. Thats why im looking for an other one. Also this one im talking about is 36v by factory so a lot safer then using a 12v motor at 24 or 36v.
