To run a zero motor on a stock M365 will have exposed wires because the wires run on the wrong side?
Flipping the fork was not possible without some modification/fabrication to make the wire protection come out on the correct side?

Yes, if you installed the wheel where the wiring comes out the same side as the original wiring it would spin the wrong way. You could also just make the motor run in reverse, but not sure which wires to switch.
No, thats not needed at all. Flipping the forks is easy and requires no other work besides taking it apart.
You take the stem and the stem clamp off, undo the bolt below it (this sets the steering alignment with the body, so when you reassemble don't forget to set it again so it rides straight!) + the front wheel splash guard. Then you should be able to get the steering bearing assembly apart enough to flip the fork. There's a washer above the fork (below where the stem clamp would have been) with a part that sticks out to hit the stop for the steering. With your hands raise the washer above the stop, this allows you to flip the fork. No need to remove that little sliver set screw you'll see, there's enough room to get the washer above the stop without removing it. Also, without the stop you could turn the steering 360 degrees and thats no bueno!
Now with it flipped put everything back together, the clamp also flips with it (see pic in previous post).
