Hectic has vibe now.


#1

When I got my sb Hectic, it was absolutely dead smooth. I haven’t done anything to it except change the string and apply a little drop of thin lube once the bearing broke in. Now it has a significant vibe. Even after letting it grind on my thumb, making sure the string is not touching the sides, and all that good stuff, it still has a vibe. I’m not sure what could have happened unless this is a property of the bearing somehow. Any ideas on what happened and how to fix it? Thanks in advance.


#2

Same thing happened to me, but I just broke in the bearing completely and it stopped.


#3

OK, the problem has worsened significantly. The wobble, vibe, and responsiveness are extreme. I cleaned my bearing, thinking that some particles of debris or silicone got into it, but the problem is only worse. (yes, I thin lubed it) Do I need a new bearing? This is extremely frustrating.

If its nt the bearing problem, it is your throw.


#5

The problem is definitely not my throw, and a PGM? How does that help me?


#6

Have you tried the finger test?


#7

Yes, as established in my original post. There is definitely something wrong with the bearing. It only spins for about 1 second on a flick.


#8

Do you have any Duncans or other yoyos with a smalll bearing?

sorry put it on the wrong post. :stuck_out_tongue: :stuck_out_tongue: :stuck_out_tongue: :stuck_out_tongue: :stuck_out_tongue: :stuck_out_tongue:

If you’ve cleaned it properly and you’re still having issues, I’d say contact Ben from YYF about it. I’m sure they’ll replace it.


#11

Only a Mosquito.


#12

Replace the bearing on the Mosquito with the bearing on the Hectic, se how that works.


#13

Change the bearing. That will fix it. If you have tapmered with the bearing at all then the warranty will do you no good. Bearings can cause some serious vibe/wobble.


#14

I just put the Mosquito bearing on and same thing. Lots of vibe, tug responsive.

My guess is that your mosquito bearing is chok full of lube?


#16

all I did was add a drop of thin lube once the bearing broke in.


(JonasK) #17

So you did that too your mosquito bearing too?


#18

yes


#19

If both bearings do the same thing, then its the yoyo.

Contact Ben.

Weird, I can’t imagine what I could have done to it. It’s never been dropped or anything like that.
