Default hk-4035-5xx

Anyone planning on using a hk-4035-5xx should know the 25mm bolt pattern wont fit on the motor mount you need the hkIII-4035-5xx with both the 25 and 30mm mounting holes and you can only use 2 bolts.

Weird indeed. The HK3-4035-560 doesn't mount with all 4 bolts, but only the 30mm pair.

hey, i saw you are running a 700mx, what did you do about the pinion not touching the main shaft 100%? mine only touches about 75% did you grind another spot for the grub screw that holds it and move the pinion down?
