Luftverk 000 axle


#1

What size is the miniscule axle in the 000? Will any other somewhat longer size fit, say a sOMETHING 8mm doping axle. Or, am I stuck with that super short axle? Thanks Everyone.

Yeah it’s a measly 5mm axle on the 000 and the Octavia and a 8mm axle will not fit.
For this reason I dare not screw open my Octavia unless I abosolutely have to, the crazy short axle alongside the tight bearing seat on both side makes it crazy hard to screw back together. (And I don’t have any extra bearing to try for a loosed fit.

(I measured mine and got 5mm, strange that Rewind says it’s 6mm)

5mm.

A longer size will make a little bump on the other side of the yoyo


#4

Thanks for the info guys. Guess I can do no more tuning.


#5

Titanium, unlike aluminum, is stronger than the steel in the axle… so I think that concern is not necessarily warranted in this case.


#6

It’s not worrying about threads, it’s just crazy hard to screw back together smoothly


#7

Yes it is.

Thanks for posting this, I felt this way about the 000 as well - looks like I’m not getting an Octavia lol
