Do I have to take out the c clip on my yoyo to lube it?


#1

Can I lube my yoyo without taking the c clip and the shields off?

In case that I have to do it, do I have to put back the c clips and shields or just leave them off?


#2

You don’t have to take them off. And you can leave them off if you take them off.


#3

It’s easier to clean and lube them with the shields off. You don’t have to put them back on but it’s not hard to do.

Once again, I refer you to this topic for a plethora of yoyo knowledge, hints and kinks…

Funny, I just logged on to ask about the shields too.

What kind of lube do you use? (Just wondering)

But it makes it a whole lot easier and more effective. If you don’t most of the oil sits on the shield rather than going into the bearing.

I don’t take the C clips off when I lube my bearing. it works just fine.

You don’t need to take shields off to lube a bearing.
