So, I have been yoyoing for about 2 1/2 years now and this problem still is persistent.
Whenever I put the yoyo jam thin lube in a bearing, it becomes this way. I know that you are supposed to let it run through the bearing but even after a week of playing with it, maybe 30 minutes a day with the same yoyo. This happened to all my current bearing but one and it happened to my recently bought One Drop 54 bearing. Id prefer not to buy new bearings.
Would cleaning the bearing help? Would it happen again if I put lube in the yoyo after cleaning it(I only put in a small drop, too)? And if cleaning is the answer how would I go about doing it?
