I recently bought a Trifecta bearing to put on my Genesis. I was super stoked about this…until I realized that my bearing refused to come off of my Genesis. I have a bearing removal tool and I’ve even tried using pliers to no avail. I even brought it to a club where other people tried to get it off and they weren’t able to remove it either. I just bought this genesis a few months ago but had no desire to take off the bearing until now, so it’s not like I can even return the thing since my warranty has expired.
I still wanted to try out this Trifecta bearing though, so I decided to put it on my favorite throw: my RecRev Mangaroo. The stock bearing came out with the bearing tool…no problemo. But then after about 2 hours of play…my yoyo started to become responsive and making weird noises. I tried removing the bearing but it wouldn’t come out and now I think my bearing seat is beginning to get stripped.
I haven’t been able to use my mangaroo for a few weeks now because it’s just so responsive. I’m really disappointed. Any suggestions? Does anyone know what’s going on with my yoyos? Tips to get rid of a stuck bearing?
