HELP! MY YYF ONE IS RESPONSIVE!


#1

I have the unresponsive bearing inside!

Please help!

Thank you!


#2

CLEAN THE BEARING!


#3

clean the bearing, or just play with it more. It’s probably just breaking in.
look at the bearing and make sure nothing’s inside it.


#4

if you just got it then it just needs to be brocken in but if you have had it a while then its time for a good cleaning.
heres how…

  1. deshield it! this can be done by using a closepin to remove the c ring and then taping out the shields
  2. clean it with mineral spirts. BE carefull when using flamable liquid.
  3. let it dry!
  4. use a small amount of thin lube and reshield the bearing.
  5. have fun! it may take a few hours to get your bearing fully unresponcive again.

Having the shields to be still on, I think you just need to break it in. Debris rarely gets into shielded bearings. Check for debris in the bearing seat.


#6

How on Earth do you deshield the bearing with a closepin…

Paperclip perhaps,Needle,Tack…But closepin I’d like to see that.


#7

uh hello?? a closepin is very similar to a needle you use the point to pop out the c ring.
it has always worked the best for me.


#8

A closepin as in the wooden thing that you squeeze to clamp something ???

Im not disagreeing with you I’m just wondering :smiley:


#9

I think you mean safety pin!


#10

YES!!!
for some reason I have always called it a closepin…
but you get my point
