Clean the bearing.

Rsmod is right. Thin lube will just make it more responsive if you already had lube in there.

Actually, the thin lube breaks down the thick lube.

So if you thin lubed a thick lubed bearing, it will spin longer than if you only have thick lube in it.

Oh I didn’t know that. Thanks!

Or you can just keep playing with it until it wears out.

Dry bearings are better, and provide longer spin times. :wink:

Running the bearing dry can kill the bearing faster though.

Yes, but with a tiny tiny drop of thin lube, it will be extent to it’s life. :wink:

But then it’s not running the bearing dry. :wink:

I should of thought that over before I posted it.

Sorry. :slight_smile:

Yes, but the bearing is still gonna last a couple of months, probably over a year.

That’s really a matter of preference; I prefer thin lubed or just stock bearings.
