You could ask Dave Palmer, KB5WIA if he noted that spec.,
 when he rebuilt his Yaesu motor last year (March 2012)

Subject: [amsat-bb] G5500 Rotor motor Question

Anybody know what the rpm of the AC motors are. I know from the Yaesu
specs that after all of the gear reduction they list EL as 67 seconds for EL
and 58 Seconds for AZ.

I would like to experiment with an AZ and EL system but like to see what RPM
the motor starts out with and how much torque to get the final results. They show
Elevation at 101 FT-LBS and AZ at 44 FT-lbs.

I have looked around to see if somewhere the specs are available for the motor 
but have had no luck. I have seen quite a few pictures of rebuilds of that rotor
with part number and have a manual that shows parts.
