It really depends on the brush...Like Orion spirits take forever...
767's take abotu 5 minutes @2v
well almost any Reedy brush...is 5 mintures at 2V
So I hope that helps,

Every motor needs sufficient time for break in for maximum performance. Are you talking about the Reedy Ti edition? or Cobalt 2 ? Those are the only 2 silver can motors I know of.

sorry to hijack, but I meant Mabuchi motor silver cans, the ones that came with the Tamiya Mini M03. I dont even know if you can replace the brush on those

He means stock silver cans that can't be opened.
I run mine untill the brushes sit flush against the comm. It normally takes 30-50 hours at 5v
