888 bearing question

Im my 888 I just have the bearing it came with. It started making sort of a scrachy sound and is not spinning as smoothly anymore. If I cleaned the bearing would this be fixed? Or should I do something else?

If it sounds like it is grinding, then you want to go ahead and clean it because there is probably something in there. If it is just a bit louder and whistling a bit more than usual, it should be fine.

After u clean it make sure u lube it

Use mineral spirits, make sure it does not say less bad on your hands because the less bad its on your hands the less good it will do to your bearing.

Yes, you should clean it.

No, you do not need to lube it (unless you want)

Thanks for the help!
