My M1 is responsive when i ordered it unresponsive. What should I do?


#1

please post things i can do to make it unresponsice


#2

It is a 10ball bearing so you will need some time to break it in. This can take up to three weeks. The second option is cleaning it with Mineral Sprits and put a drop of lube in it. Those are the best ways IMO, what response did you get?


#3

Did you take out the friction stickers?


(system) #4

Break in the bearing…


#5

Break it in, and then, it’ll be the best you have ever played with.


#6

ok brake in the bearing and buy thin .555 one drop pads for your M1 and it will be unresponsive.


#7

I suggest just breaking it in. You really don’t need the new pads, so just play with it a lot.


#8

Thanks guys ill look for mineral spirits, ill try to brake it in before i use the spirits. Ill also try to order some new response pads just for any other yoyo that i want to put them on

I believe you can also clean it with water. It won’t remove all of the lube, so it will just shorten the break-in time a bit.


#10

DONT TRY TO CLEAN WITH WATER!

water means rust which means broken bearing… dont do it!

clean with mineral spirits :wink:


#11

Don’t bother cleaning it, just play with it and it will be broken in.


#12

Actually, you are wrong.

You can clean 10balls in water without being afraid for it to rust. The 10ball is made of stainless steel, so it wont rust.


#13

Not necessarily. They are resistant to rusting, but that doesn’t mean they can’t. There’s just less of a chance.


#14

my m1 took about 1.5 months so it might take a while


#15

that could happen


#16

Yeah. Once again, it could vary depending on how much you play.


#17

I play a lot.like maybe 6-10 hours on weekdays and at least 10 on weekends


#18

I was talking to the OP


#19

Da5id from onedrop guaranteed that it wont rust and I believe he said that if it does by some weird reason rust they will replace the bearing- dont quote me on that though
