my kk bearing and the stock genesis bearing wont spiin freely when i spin it

srry if there was any mistakes in there written ::slight_smile:


#2

spec bearings tend to die randamly. Try cleaning them in mineral spirits,


#3

looks like you forgot to finish your sentence. but yeah… clean with mineral spirits, put a little thin lube.


#4

then its going to be rusty after like 1week or 2.


#5

ummm… no… first of all, its stainless steel. second of all, thin lube somewhat prevents rusting


#6

so the genesis bearing if i washed it wont rust ; :o
