you should not have any problems with it. Voltage rating of PM
brushed motors (and other types for that matter) basically means two
1. Insulation rating of commutator and windings - 6 and 12V are so low
that there is no practical difference between them (unless you are
talking about MEMS kind of motors).
2. Higher voltage rating for given type of motor means higher windings
resistance, which means less current is needed (at higher voltage) for
the same performance.
Running the motor at higher voltage creates the danger of exceeding
it's thermal envelope, which is the most common (beside of mechanical
failure) way to destroy it. As long as your motor is not getting hot
(bear in mind that it takes a while for heat to transfer from armature
to the case of the motor), it will be fine.
