bearing killer?


#1

both of the two bearings i put in my skyline have gotten jammed from the inside, and i dont know y or how to fix it. the first on e was the stock bearing, then the other was a yoyojam medium bearing.

HEEEELLLPPP!!!

Gave you tried cleaning the bearing with mineral spirits? Even the smallest single strand of hair or thread or something else can jam the bearing.


#3

YYJ medium bearing?
Skylines use large bearings.
Anyway, it is probably hair os string that got in the bearing, try to clean them.


#4

If you can deshield them and blow them out with compress air. Later.

Keep it spinning™


#5

And… why did you put a YYJ bearing in there? :stuck_out_tongue:


#6

i had no other extra bearings except an unused yyj bearing…i couldnt resist not playling with the skyline 4 1 day

Ok, sort of the same thing happened to me. I realized that my DM bearing wasn’t playing as well as it used to, and when I took it out it looked a bit dented. I wasn’t sure if that was causing it, so I put some 3 in 1 on there and some bicycle grease stuff. It played a little bit better for a minute, but now it doesn’t and it’s so responsive that I can’t do many tricks. I was also playing with my Legacy and suddenly the bearing got REALLY loud. I think I’ll just get 2 new bearings, but what else could I do?

If the Legacy bearing gets loud, don’t get rid of it. That means that it is breaking in.

But will it get quiet again? I can’t really yo-yo when it gets late if it won’t…

P.S. I think I might get a DV888 or Hectic

It depends. My Speed Maker did the same thing and then became quiet. My Speeder bearing however, stayed loud. It took a week for mine to quiet down.

Thanks, but I think the bearing has started to “cool down”. It’s almost like it used to be.
