RC Motor maintance

I have a RC with 700 miles on it. The motor (Bafang BFRMGO6 48V 750 W7) runs silent with no unusual noise issues there but am wondering if it should be taken down and the gears lubricated on some schedule..
I read about people doing that but not sure if they are taking about the same motor used in the RC bike.
I contacted Juiced but they were really of no help or opinion. If there is any maintenance info maybe someone can advise.

I was wondering the same thing and was also considering sourcing 3 metal gears on Ali Express once I find out the specs of the nylon gears and trolly inside the Bafang RMG06. motor. I just need to wait til my bike's warranty is up.

I spoke to Kyle at Bolton eBikes about both lubrication for the nylon gears and a metal gear upgrade and he says he's never had to relube them and has never seen the nylon gears wear out in a Bafang hub motor. That bodes well for the nylon not needing lubrication, but I know from the r/c car world, everyone upgrades to metal gears. I would still like to source and try out 3 alloy gears, then if after testing them, they're better in any way, sell them as an upgrade kit with the security bit needed to open the motor and a new trolly.
