noisy bearing.


#1

I bought a Duncan mosquito just for the fun of modding something and it seems that no mater what i do i cant quiet the bearing. any ideas? later.

Hm, maybe you could try lubing or cleaning then lubing it?

I would also recommend using a higher viscosity oil.

How does it play? Does it spin nicely?

(for a $10 yoyo :))

Mosquitoes, from my experience, can spin from 30 seconds +

its actually a 5 dollar yoyo i bought it at the local wal-mart. when i got it i timed it at 13 seconds with nothing done to it. now iv added some wight rings i made out of bailing wire and took one friction sticker off and shaved the other one down a bit. ill try to get some pics in i guess. spins for 45 seconds for my top spin time. guess its hardly anything iv seen one spin for 5 minutes on youtube.

Well, the one on YT was heavily modded. But, the spin time should eb good enough, for a $5 dollar yoyo. I guess at 1st, it wasn’t spinning that much, because the bearing wasn’t broken in. Good luck!


#8

i got it to shut up finally.


#9

How?

took of the shields and there was some kind of plastic thing in there. don’t know how it got in there. later and keep it spinning.
