Forgive me if there is another topic like this somewhere else. I looked and could not find any.
About 2 weeks ago my DM bearing started making this really annoying noise, and would not spin nearly as long as it did before. So I got it cleaned, (with my busy schedule this took about a week to get around to and bought another YoYoFactory bearing so I wouldn’t have to wait to play my DM if the original bearing started making that noise again.
Well, it did. So I put my new bearing in and it worked fine until 4 days later. My new bearing started making noise, (a different sound then the old bearing made) but it still spins fine.
From reading other topics about bearings, I assume thats just the new bearing breaking in.
But about the other one…
Is it common the bearing needs cleaning this often?
If not, what am I doing wrong?
Would lube help?
Please note: I’ve had this yo-yo since early may, and have played it practically everyday since. So I doubt that noise from the old bearing is because it’s breaking in.
Also, the caps from the old bearing were not placed back on and got lost.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
