DV888 AND PROTOSTAR


#1

LOOKING TO SEE IF THERE IS AN UPGRADED BEARING FOR A PROTOSTAR. AND INFO ABOUT DV888 BEARING PLEAE HELP


#2

they dont get much better then a center trak bearing. are you trying to avoid tilt get more speed or smoothness?


#3

I KNOW THE PROTOSTAR HAS ONE JUST DOESNT SLEEP FOR VERY LONG TIME AND I AM LOOKING AT THE DV888 AND CANT FIND MUCH INFO ABOUT THE STOCK BEARING.


#4

There’s something called “Cleaning” that you can do to bearings.

Use the search bar at the top, im sure you will find plenty of topics concerning it.

I HAVE CLEANED IT SEVERAL TIMES.


#6

what did you remove the bearing with? i use a drill bill to stick in it and wiggle it out. if you used pliers you might have crushed it and caused friction. your not gonna see to big of a difference between spec, center trac or any other good bearing imo besides in smoothness and noise.


#7

Waste, yyf ships all bearings dry, cleaning it will lower spin time. And Does the bearing spin when flicked? If so then it is 100% your throw, as I can get 2 mins+ on a stock protostar. If the bearing dosn’t spin you have a manufacture defect and should email yyf.


#8

Yea it spins.
Not 100 percent though. I did use pliers but really Dont think I caused any issue that way. Comes out pretty easily


#9

It might be your throw and there are many threads on a good throw.
And how long does your CT bearing really spin with a flick. Mine was 15 seconds with a flick on a dry CT bearing.

If you are confident with your good throw, well contact YYF or YYE.

I use pliers too but wiggle it out gently, it should be fine.


#10

Straight out of the box bearing spin time was only about 7 second would sleep for about 3 minute


#11

It’s a plastic, not a Bhudda King that’s nothing to be complaining about.


#12

Sleep time has reduced drastically. Sleeps vary from 1 minute 15 seconds to 1 minute 30 seconds now
