I got a yyf popstar, it was really squeaky so I put some oil on it. Thankfully it isn’t squeaky any more but is now very responsive. How would I fix that
Just keep playing it it will break in
You may have overkilled on the oil. You can either keep playing it until it breaks in (could take a while depending on exactly how much oil you put in) or you can clean the bearing by soaking and swishing it around in some mineral turpentine and then reapply a single drop of oil.
What type of oil? Or you mean lube? Cause I think actual oil is too thick.
I think that I am just going to break it in. Thank you all for your help!
Mine squeaked too. Just live with it. Just break it in.
Nothing wrong with responsive anyways
If you used a proper type of thin bearing lubricant, you’ll be able to break it in within a few hours of throwing. If you used some type of thick or medium oil, it’ll take a very, very long time for the bearing to become unresponsive again. If you’re able to tell us what you put in your bearing we’ll be able to give you a much better idea of your options.
