Ceramic bearing is noisy?

(Oanh) #1

I have 1 Dif e yo cearamic bearing, it become noisy so much so I decided clean it. After cleaning, It run well again without lube ( about 20 seconds). Then I lube my bearing with one drop dry lube but It run noisy again and sleep shortly (only 8 seconds)??. Please give me advice, I need it so much. Thank everyone

Check this out!


You can also try thin lube, I’ve used that before on ceramics and it works fine. Same disclaimers apply, make sure you use a tiny amount and compressed air spin out any excess.


I don’t understand this part. Dry lube doesn’t come in drops, unless you’re talking about "Dark Matter“?

Hi! It is Revolution BB lube (is sold by Store Rewind)


OK, it looks to be similar to YYF’s Dark Matter; which is a micro-particle dry lubricant suspension.

I would give it more of a chance to “break in” after application. My guess is that after following the procedure you’ve been using, the bearing will free up, if you just give it a chance.

I suggest you throw hard sleepers, and test the responsiveness. The yo-yo should become less and less responsive, and in a little while you should be good to go. That’s been my experience with dry lubes. Hope this works for you!
