This comes up occasionally. People will say, I need to lube my bearing but these cap things are stuck to my bearing!
Here is what to do to remove those caps which are known as “spacers.”
First, what you will need:
A yoyo taken apart with a stuck spacer on top. It looks like this> http://i1296.photobucket.com/albums/ag2/Bcmaddog/null_zpsfdb5e56b.jpg
A flathead screwdriver or anything flat enough to wedge in between the spacer and bearing.
Get your tool, and wedge it in like this
Wiggle up and down, and it should start to look like this> http://i1296.photobucket.com/albums/ag2/Bcmaddog/null_zpsa71efad3.jpg
Keep going up and down until it comes off, if it doesn’t then go pry the screwdriver into the opposite side where the spacer is still stuck.
And that’s all! Hope you achieve your goal, PM me if it doesn’t come off.
The spacers, if you used a metal tool or something hard, will come out looking a little scraped.
But it should not effect play ;).
