I had the same thing happen. Its from getting the solder tabs to hot. In my case anyway.
I took some off of a stock motor and put back on. I think the are just capacitors .

If the caps are not present on your motor it is not a problem... we started out with the caps on the motors but found that the motors actually seemed to cause less radio interferance without the caps.
