The SSS Motors Thread


A Google search only shows SSS 56104 500kv motors available on eBay from Chinese sellers. Are they trust-worthy? Or does anyone know of a U.S. source? Thanks!


I got mine from aliexpress. If it doesnt show up then I get my money back. Cant ask for more than that. It took about three weeks to arrive.


Thanks. I just ordered one. Anyone know who actually makes these SSS motors? I cannot find a website. Are they made in China? Also does anyone have a detailed spec sheet for the 56104?


Just received a new SSS 56114 from Germany–Halter–usw-/Brushless/TFL-56-mm/56114/bl-motor-sss-56114-350kv-10y.html and I opened it to compare with 360. Almost the same except magnets are few mm longer on 350. I try to reutilize old rotor untill I can’t get the shaft milled down to 8.1mm. curious to see if there’s any difference in performances


What was wrong with the old sss360? Did you have problems with it?


What esc are you guys using? I ordered a HobbyWing SeaKing V3 130A BL. But it worries me because there are many posts about them burning up. I’d like to avoid that!


Got little water into the pod last time and the wires, cut short and struggled to remove enamel, are oxidized, solder won’t stick anymore! This time I don’t cut the original cables, will try to do a sealed junction right out of the pod. Anyway, old 360 is still running fine, bearing not oxidized, it’s that it can’t be resoldered properly


Tried this trick?


Nope, but thank you for the tip! I will, for sure


I had exactly the same issue, very frustrating. I cutted the motor wires a way to short on my SSS.
I did it like in the instructables thread + spiritus and it worked for me. Connection is solid! Good luck!


No idea if this guy is legit but there is a new seller on ebay listed as located in New Mexico selling SSS 56104 500kvs new for $69 with free shipping. I just ordered one from him.


Hi Sunrise
Could you let us all know if he is legit. I am/was going to order also but thought I would ask you first.
I think I made a mistake on my other posts by misreading something and thinking the 5694 was 120KV not 1200KV.
Thanks though


I just checked my ebay account. The seller has been removed from ebay so it was clearly fraudulent. My payment was never processed. The seller definitely looked suspicious because he had zero reviews and was listing multiples of that same motor for sale for a price that appeared too good to be true USD$69 including shipping).

I ordered the same SSS 56104 500kv motor from the listing below on August 8. Delivery not expected for a month. Fingers crossed this one is legit! Again it is through ebay so I am protected if it is not. In this case the seller is well established on ebay with more than one million reviews and the price $142+$14 S&H) seems about right.


It worked! Not so shine like in instructables photo… But good enought to solder that motor again


Once again there are a bunch of most likely fraudulent listings on ebay for SSS 56104 motors. If the seller has no rating or if the price seems too good to be true — be careful.
