Shim it so the rotor floats in the middle of the windings with minimal friction on the bearings. Start by taking a number of shims off, assemble the motor, and push on the rotor to see which side the shims need to go on. Repeat until satisfied. You'll want the tiniest amount of float on the ends once finished.
