Responsive YYF WHiP


#1

Okay, so I received my YoYoFactory WHiP a couple of days ago and when I first got it, it was perfectly unresponsive.
However, today, it started being highly responsive all of a sudden.
It comes back when I give it a slight tug.
Do I have to clean out my bearings already or something? I’ve never done that before A

Also, will a Duncan SG Stickers fit for a Duncan Metal Drifter?

Sorry for the off topic question.


#3

hair in the bearing? or something.


#4

The bearing is probably just breaking in. Just keep playing with it.


#5

Nope, nothing’s in the bearing.
Hopefully it’s just breaking in, I’ll try to keep playing with it…


#6

When there is nothing visable in the bearing, I just drop one drop of really thin lube on the bearing and then play with it till it is unresponsive again. Normaly around an hour of play.


#7

Allright, I’ll try to lube it my bearing and break it in a little.


#8

This also happened with my grind machine.
I ended up prying the bearing from the spacers and it didn’t spin at all.
Since there is no spacers in the whip, I would just clean the bearing and lube it up.
