I highly recommend getting a wattmeter and a temp gun, then you can test a motor set-up and know what it is doing.
I believe the important place to measure the temp is the motor windings, not the outer case.

We used to figure a motor could safely put out about 3 times it's weight in grams, in watts out. But I have several motors that far exceed that.
Your motor would only be 60-65 watts if that was true. I think newer designs have let motors produce more power without so much heat.
