Strip a small amount of insulation off the ends of nine of the one-meter wires, tin them, and solder them to the motors.

After soldering each leadwire, inspect that the solder joint is smooth and shiny (not dull and rough, which would indicate a "cold solder joint" that won't conduct or hold well).
