Funky bearing?


#1

Its been a while since ive posted here but ive still been yo-yoing. I noticed that my yoyo (velocity) was going to the right side every time I swung it down. So I decided to investigate. It turns out my bearing has been sticking to the yellow sides of my velocity. Even pulling them out as I try to get the bearing off of them. Every time I put it back together it sticks to a side. Any suggestions on how to stop this?

I’m not sure why it matters which side it’s on…

If you mean the string is off-centered, work on your throw. A good throw will keep it centered on the bearing.

It wont stop, its the bearing seat that is holding onto the bearing. It’s actually very very normal. It also has no effect on where the string goes, so no need to worry about that either.

Yeah, don’t worry about it. This happens on all yoyos, even my C13! It’s perfectly normal.

Welcome back :).

Its normal for that to happen, if the bearing doesnt stick to a side it it would just fall of. Work on your throw if the yoyo is tilting.
