To check your bearing, do not clamp it in any way. Clean it with a solvent and dry it with compressed air (don't spin it) using a hair drier to make sure all solvent is out . Now spin it with your fingers, it should be dead smooth if not trash it. the slightest amount of oil or solvent will mask any problems.

Big, This is a "tiny" bearing in "my world". Try my method you will see it is valid for even the slightest problem.

Your due new bearings after that many flights. Especially when you start to hear the infamous rattle noise. Boca bearings work well for replacements.

Since youve gone to all the trouble removing and dissassembling the motor, you would have to be "nuts" to not replace those bearings.
