I recently purchased a Kraton 6s in May, and I just had my motor start smoking. I opened it and figured out that a bearing had exploded and pretty much trashed most of the inside of the motor. Is this covered by Arrmas warranty?

Should be.
Contact where you got it from they should be able to sort it.
May take a few weeks there not that quick in the UK not sure where you are.
Keep an eye on your ESC when you get your motor back.
Had my ESC catch fire and arrma say it may have been caused when my motor bearing went.

Just buy a bearing it will be a lot quicker. Probably cheaper than the postage to return the motor.

That rotor is trashed now. It needs a replacement.
Just an FYI with any of these RTR motors you will need to either frequently oil the bearings or replace them with higher quality bearings.

If the motor is getting hot it will cook the oil/grease out of any bearing good or bad.
