  1. Hello, Been using my KK for about a year now and absolutely love it. I have read countless questions regarding the shaft to the Rotisserie motor being too long or too short and people cutting it down to fit. I had the same problem in that my Rotisserie shaft was too long and solved the problem by simply buying stainless steel washers (same size as came with the KK) plus l bought 3 of the same stainless steel hex bolts that were half an inch longer than the 1 inch ones that came with the KK You need the longer bolts so there is sufficient threads on the bolt to engage the threads in the KK bolt holes after you add the washers otherwise the bolt's threads may strip when you tighten them down. Both of these items I found on Amazon. Washers: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B000BD5HEA/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Bolts: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B07D5W7QH2/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I used the washers and bolts to lengthen the distance the motor bracket sits out from the KK. Simply place the washers on the 3 bolts between the motor bracket and your KK and adjust accordingly. By utilizing this method you can adjust the length the motor bracket sits out from the KK without cutting down the shaft plus this allows you to adjust for any Rotisserie motor you use in the future if not the original motor that came with the KK. I hope this post is helpful.
  2. Hello, Just to add a different approach to this dilemma, I ordered from Amazon 1 1/2" long x 3/8" diameter thread (regular not fine thread) stainless steel socket head cap screws (Allen screws) plus a box of 100 stainless steel 3/8" washers and used the washers to space the rotisserie mount 1/2" further out from the smoker. The socket head cap screws that come with the Komodo Kamado are 1" long. The 1 1/2 length bolts allow you to adjust the motor mount further out from the smoker. I found 2" long bolts too long. If you can't find stainless steel socket head cap screws then you can get galvanized or stainless steel hex head bolts and washers at any Lowe's/Home Depot. Again, 3/8" thread x 1 1/2" length. This way you don't have to grind down and thereby ruin the shaft for future motor adaptions. You use washers to obtain different spacing to fit any rotisserie motor regardless of the depth of the motor's shaft opening. Hope that helps.
