How to clean up an electric motor.

This past weekend i had a castle creations phoenix ICE 80HV esc explode into flame directly underneath my scorpion 4025-630 motor.

the motor is now completely covered coated and filled with a fine black ash/soot/powder.

what can i clean it out with that will not hurt the stator, magnets, windings, bearings.

the first thing i plan on doing is hitting it with compressed air to blast off anything loose but im sure its going to need some attention from a tooth brush or pipe cleaner.

what type of chemicals are safe? contact cleaner, denatured alcohol are the first to come to mind but i just want to be sure so i don't ruin a good motor.

Thanks in advance for the help.

Who cares... its just money...

Performance Plus 3. Extremely flammable and you should avoid continuous breathing of vapors. It's an electric motor cleaner.

Mustang, OK

Dont forget to add a drop of oil to the bearings. The Performance Plus will leave no oil behind!

The Scorpion Lube I have found works well for bearings.
