My motor maintenance practice:

1. Open the motor can.
2. Clean the rotor by motor cleaner
3. Add bearing oil to the bearings in the can.
4. Assembling the motor again.

I have to replace the carbon brushes with a new one once a month.

Its not really design to be opened, not like the 540 stuff, but use small flat head screw driver and bend the 2 tabs back.

Answer: No. Silicone oil will contaminate the surface of comm and brush.

Use Plus3 Electric Motor Cleaner, using the thin nozzle, simply spray through the two holes, pointing to the comm. Spray very little, rev motor, spray again, rev one more time, then lightly oil bushings with lite bushing oil. Spray once every 4 - 5 runs. Lightly Oil bushings every 2 runs, or when you hear squealing noise.

Squealing Noise means the bushing is DRY!

Brushes, if minizracer is out of stock, you may buy from me for $6.50 + $1.00 for shipping. I won't sell these if minizracer has it in stock. In addition, I will include a new replacement bushing for the endbell.


Brushes, depending on mini-z miles driven each day, can last at least 3 months.

We have high-performance carbon brushes available by request (not listed in the Shop), so feel free to order from either one of us. NML, are the aforementioned brushes carbon?

Thanks, minizracer. The brushes are carbon indeed.

It is comparatively cheap to buy carbon brushes in Hong Kong. It cost about $3 each now.:D

These are the only two fluids that should touch the commutator: Motor Cleaner, and Comm Drops.

Anything oil based will foul it, causing motor to perform poorly.
