Default How to check a motor?

I have a Castle 2650 motor I need checked. I want to sell but I'm not sure if it's in working condition.

More:
Motor was in a VE8 when the ESC went up in smoke. Have a new ESC on the way but don't want to hook it up if there could be a problem with the motor.

I have a nice VOM if that will help.

Thanks,
Dennis

The only way to check it is to hook it up to an ESC. I have had several ESCs go up in smoke and none of them damaged the motor.
