broken bearings


#1

alright i have a cursed smacked right on me by my superstar (and other yoyos.) Everytime i throw a yoyo with a fine working bearing, after about a day and a half the bearing gets very noisy and the yoyo becomes responsive because their is dirt in the bearing. This occured with my YYF Superstar and even with an Axiom i borrowed, and a Hayabusa. I bought a new bearing for the Superstar and the same thing happened. I am not throwing it over dirt or anything like that! Am I doing anything wrong??? ???

It might just be breaking in, but it should get less responsive. Do you have the shields on?


#3

try cleaning your bearings :wink:


#4

Is it dirt? Are you sure it is dirt, or is it just random stuff? Are your bearing shields in? What response, and is there anything flaking off in your yoyo?


#5

Probably ur strings. Change your strings, clean your bearing and see what happens! ;D Also, wash your hands before yo’ing, don’t know what kind of dirt might be on them ;D Also, does it turn noisy once you whack something?

Try to clean your bering or lube your bearing to make your yyo unresponsive.

Happy Throwing! ==]
