how to take a axle out of a fireball/raider


#1

I want to change my fireball to a raider for better loops but can not seem to know how to take the axle out. Any help is apprciated.


#2

Pliers seem to do the trick for me (on my Raider).


#3

you just pull it straight out.

I’m going to assume that was supposed to be in question form.

No, I gripped the axle with my pliers and then spun the yo-yo to unscrew the axle.

You want to grip it but you don’t want to damage it!

I put a piece of electrical tape between the axle and pliers, grip very tight, and unscrew.

I find that the fireball axles come out harder than the raider axles.

Both will take a nice tight grip.

The electrical tape also helps so that you don’t scrape up the axle trying to twist it off.

Good luck!

I swithched the guts of my saber raider to my fireball and it works great.
