Bearing Problems


#1

After a day without yoyoing, my bearing spin time decreased.
I dont know why this is happening. Like a few days ago i had a long flick spin. Now my bearing can barely spin for a second. Can someone help me please?


#2

a day?wow,thats pretty unusual,where did you leave it for that day?


#3

i was siliconing the yoyo so i had to let it dry for a day


#4

then you probably got silicone either on the bearing or the bearing seat,if you did,try to schrach it off with a needle or whatever you think will work


#5

i scratched off all the extra silicone in the bearing seat and i opened the bearing and got out all of the silicone that got in and the spin time is still very bad


#6

Well, if you got silicone in the bearing, it can still be affected, even if you cleaned it out. I suggest cleaning the bearing.


#7

well i’ll try cleaning it then


#8

it should work,good luck!
