Cleaning a STOCK motor ??

Hi,
 When you break in a *stock* motor (that doesn't look like it comes
apart) what is the proper way to clean it afterwards?

Motor Cleaner - Wash it out.
Comm. Stick - Fiberglass style works best, clean the comm
Oil the bushings.

Mabye have the comm. cut
Mabye change the brushes

Lots of motor cleaner through the bushings, and use comm sticks on the
commutator and brushes.  Flush that out with motor cleaner too.

I have a motor bearing cleaner (busing too) that is a fitting you press
over the end of the motor that forces motor cleaner through the
bearing/bushing.  It works perfectly for flushing them out.

There's not much more you can do to a stock motor.
