opening a bearing


#1

hi any tips on opening a bearing? i can’t get the c clip thingy off

use a pin to take it out by prying it into the small groove at the edge of the bearing. its pretty annoying but if you keep tryin itll come off. if your plannin on washin the bearing soap and water = bad

I tried cleaning a stainless steel bearing with dishwashing liquid and water and it worked!

You can clean it with the shields on.

i use a razor blade and run it along the inside of the shield rim.be careful though. taking one off should work. at least that is what i do to my yoyos.

I have one KK bearing where one side is impossible to remove until the other side’s shield is off. Try both sides - sometimes one will come off with less effort.
