its easier than you think all you need to do is buy a wide bearing and pop it in.

could try cleaning the slim bearing. That should at least make it less responsive

If you got the DV888 starter kit it should have come with a narrow and wide bearing. If so put in the wide bearing. It may need to be cleaned. If it’s the standard DV888 it should have come w/the wide bearing. Try cleaning it.

Guys pls note that i live i india and i reaaaally have no access to any store, besides the online ones of course. But the thing is i DONT HAVE PATIENCE TO wait for one more order XD.
And as I’ve seen the new dv888 came with a A sized bearing…
The things i was thinking about was to:
a) Cleaning the bearing with solvent.
b) making new muuuuuuch slimmer response pads out of flowable silicon.
c) using shims.

Do you guys thin its enough…?
Sorry for the long reply.

Yes - Clean the bearing. Give flowable silicone a shot. Skip the shims, as they could lead to string snag.
