Bearing crackling sounds

A little while ago I just put in my KK bearing, and my DM is making crackling sounds when I throw it and it’s extremely noisy. Does this happen normally when you put in a new bearing? Does this mean it just needs to be broken in?

this happened to me a while ago and i got worried too, but i started playing with it still and playing and eventually it got better
so if i were you i couldn’t worry about it


You can either lube it, or run it dry.

Runing dry means it will be noisy, and die faster. I reccomend lubing and breaking in.

Check to make sure both shields are still in. Mine did this, then I realized one of the shields had fallen out.
